Grant Given for Improvements to Sewer System
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded $970,000 to Derby, Kan., for improvements to the sewer system.
“Awarding these water infrastructure funds will help provide adequate wastewater service for current and future homes in Derby, Kan.,” said EPA Region 7 Administrator Karl Brooks. “Water infrastructure is a basic necessity to protect community health and the environment.”
The purpose of the project is to construct approximately 7,050 ft of 36-in. sewer pipe and 17 manholes. This will provide necessary sewer improvements to manage continued population growth in Derby.
EPA oversees the protection of water quality and public health. The agency is working with community leaders and the public to meet the growing needs and demands of our limited water resources.
