AGRICULTURE SECRETARY VILSACK ANNOUNCES $123 MILLION FOR RURAL WATER
PROJECTS IN 24 STATES 

Recovery Act Funds Will Help Improve Infrastructure Across Rural America


AUDIO: Vilsack Hosts Media Conference Call on ARRA Water Announcement
<mms://ocbmtcwmp.usda.gov/content/secy/sec061709.mp3>  

WASHINGTON, June 17, 2009 - Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack today
announced the selection of more than $123 million in water and
environmental projects that are being funded immediately through the
American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The projects will help provide
safe drinking water and improved wastewater treatment systems for rural
towns and communities in 24 states. 

"The water and wastewater projects announced today support the Obama
administration's goal of rebuilding and revitalizing our country's rural
infrastructure and putting people to work by doing the work that
Americans want done." Vilsack said. "These Recovery Act investments will
provide reliable drinking water and sanitary waste disposal while
creating and saving jobs in rural America." 

The 24 states where projects are located include: Florida, Iowa, Idaho,
Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Missouri, Mississippi,
North Dakota, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, South
Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington,
Wisconsin, and West Virginia. 

In Gulf County, Fla., the City of Wewahitchka has been selected to
receive $5.44 million to provide funding for a centralized water system
for the residents of Stone Mill Creek community and to replace the
city's 30- year-old storage tank. The centralized water system for Stone
Mill Creek community will ensure quality drinking water and provide
adequate water pressure for fire protection. 

Meanwhile, Johnson City in Washington County, Tenn., was selected to
receive $869,000 to extend safe, reliable water service to an area
outside the city limits where household wells and springs have become
unreliable for a significant part of the year. A majority have also
already tested positive for bacteria and other contaminants. The new
water mains will deliver service to about 75 existing households in the
Hartmantown area and enable the city to meet the needs of other families
and businesses as this rural community on its doorstep continues to
grow. 

USDA Rural Development's Water and Environmental Program provides loans
and grants to ensure that the necessary investments are made in water
and wastewater infrastructure to deliver safe drinking water and protect
the environment in rural areas. More information about USDA Rural
Development can be found at www.rurdev.usda.gov
<http://www.rurdev.usda.gov/> . Funding of individual recipients is
contingent upon their meeting the terms of the loan or grant agreement.

President Obama signed The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of
2009 into law on Feb. 17, 2009. It is designed to jumpstart the nation's
economy, create or save millions of jobs and put a down payment on
addressing long-neglected challenges so our country can thrive in the
21st century. The Act includes measures to modernize our nation's
infrastructure, enhance energy independence, expand educational
opportunities, preserve and improve affordable health care, provide tax
relief, and protect those in greatest need.
