040522HAO00903DANVILLE – State Senator Scott Bennett (D-Champaign) is thrilled to announce that the Danville Sanitary District is set to receive more than $9.6 million in water infrastructure funding.

“Repairing and upgrading our aging infrastructure is part of our ongoing efforts to protect public health and the environment,” Bennett said. “These funds will go a long way in helping wastewater treatment in our community.” 

The funds come from the Illinois EPA's State Revolving Fund Program, which includes the Water Pollution Control Loan Program and the Public Water Supply Loan Program. These programs provide low-interest loans to fund wastewater, stormwater and drinking water projects.

The Danville Sanitary District will use the funds to replace and update aging pumps and other equipment, as well as adding an energy efficient system that utilizes biogas. This project will help the District produce drainage that is within the limits set forth in their federal wastewater permit.

“Through these projects, our community will make significant strides to protect the environment and our residents,” Bennett said. “I’m pleased to see this program at work for Danville.” 

Projects are funded throughout the state through the Rebuild Illinois program, and recipients will receive an interest rate of 1.11% for both wastewater and drinking water loans. Find more information about Illinois EPA’s SRF program here
