Existing facility generates odor complaints
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) has awarded $520,400 to Wayne, Neb., for improvements to its wastewater treatment plant project.
“EPA is proud to award these water infrastructure funds to protect water quality,” said EPA Region 7 Acting Regional Administrator William Rice. “Water infrastructure is a lifeline for community health and prosperity.”
Wayne’s existing 25-year-old facility continues to generate odor complaints regarding the sludge treatment system. The grant will help construct a wastewater treatment plant that will address odor concerns.
