EPA Awards $520,400 Grant to Wayne, Neb., for Wastewater Treatment Plant Project

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.
