Maryville getting grant to improve sewer system

State Sen. Rachelle Aud Crowe announced the village of Maryville is set to receive more than $820,000 in water infrastructure funding.

“Repairing and upgrading our aging infrastructure is part of our ongoing efforts to protect public health and the environment,” said Crowe, D-Glen Carbon. “These funds will give the village of Maryville an opportunity to improve wastewater treatment in our community.”

Maryville officials will use the $820,000 to install sewer mains and manholes with plans to abandon an existing pump station. The funding will allow the village to make necessary updates to their collection system in order to continue providing proper wastewater treatment for residents.

The funds come from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency’s State Revolving Fund Program, which includes the Water Pollution Control Loan Program and the Public Water Supply Loan Program. The programs provide low-interest loans to fund wastewater, stormwater and drinking water projects through Rebuild Illinois.
