Pershing and Attica Receive Wastewater Grant

According to the State of Iowa Department of Economic Development, Marion County has been awarded a $300,000 block grant for the Pershing/Attica area to assist in the construction of a sanitary sewer collection system and an 11 million gallon controlled discharge lagoon. Cory Frank, Environmental Health Coordinator with Marion County Public Health, says that the project will also be supported by a nearly $3 million loan from the USDA. Frank tells KNIA/KRLS News that they must finish some planning aspects of the project, including site surveys and easements. He thinks they’ll have the projected completed next year.
