Tester Secures $750,000 Loan for Wastewater Systems Improvements in Carbon County
Funding provided by the United States Department of Agriculture Rural Development Program
U.S. Senator Jon Tester today announced that the Roberts Carbon County Water and Sewer District will receive a $750,000 loan from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to make critical improvements and additions to their wastewater systems.
“Whether it’s for our schools, our main street businesses, or our families, clean water is critical to Montana’s communities, especially during these unprecedented times,” said Tester. “This investment will help Harlowtown improve conditions for small business owners, farmers, and families, protecting clean water and their pocketbooks.”
The Roberts Carbon County Water and Sewer District will receive a $750,000 loan as part of the USDA Rural Development Loan Program to upgrade and replace sewer services in the District’s wastewater system improvement plant for eligible properties.
Tester has worked diligently to supply Montana’s water and wastewater systems with the funding needed to stay up-to-date. He recently secured $7 million for Hardin to make improvements to their wastewater system, and $335,000 for Wolf Point and $533,000 for Scobey to update outdated water mains. He secured nearly $3 million for Whitehall, Sweet Grass County, Whitefish, Cascade County, Seeley Lake, Sanders County, and Toole County. Additionally, he secured an additional $2 million to make upgrades to Geraldine’s water system.
