ABERDEEN, S.D.(Aberdeen American News)- Aberdeen has received $51.3 million in state financing to go toward $56 million in improvements at the city’s water reclamation plant.
Aberdeen was one of several communities and rural water systems to receive a combination of loans and grants for water or wastewater system improvements from the South Dakota Board of Water and Natural Resources.
The financing included a $32.4 Clean Water State Revolving Loan and a nearly $18.9 million grant through the American Rescue Plan, according to a news release form the state.
In November, the Aberdeen City Council heard about the need for $56.3 million in improvements at the city’s water reclamation plant. That work would help expand treatment capacity from 8 million gallons per day to 12 million gallons per day.
