The City of Gallatin is the recipient of a $40,000 Clean Water Engineering Report Grant from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. The grant will allow the city to evaluate and plan for addressing inflow and infiltration of stormwater into the collection system. The grant offers funding to qualifying small communities to help cover engineering costs for evaluating water and wastewater system improvements.
“Water and wastewater treatment systems are key elements of a community’s infrastructure,” said Carol Comer, director of the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. “We are committed to helping Missouri communities find funding for infrastructure improvement projects, which in turn helps protect public and environmental health and supports the local economy.”
The city will use the grant to identify wastewater system improvements needed to continue reliable service to the area and reduce inflow and infiltration of stormwater into the sewer system. The facility plan should be complete in January 2021.
