MAY 5, 2011 (LINCOLN, NEB.)—The Nebraska Department of Economic Development (DED) has awarded $350,000 in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding to the Village of Ansley (pop. 520) to build a new wastewater facility due to most of the original equipment approaching or surpassing lifespan capabilities and to the institution of new regulations.
The Village's wastewater treatment plant and most of its vitrified clay sewer mains were built in 1961. However the original design of the collection system appears to date back to 1950 with construction commencing in 1961. In 1984, the plant was upgraded. Treated wastewater is discharged to nearby Mud Creek.
Additional funding of $775,600 through the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality's State Revolving Loan Fund will complete the project.
Federal funds are made available to DED from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's CDBG program to assist with the development of businesses and communities throughout the state. Funding requests for this program are administered by DED and are available to local governments with populations less than 50,000 and counties in Nebraska.
