North Judson Preparing for Wastewater Grant Application

North Judson Water TowerThe Town of North Judson continues to move ahead with its efforts to get funding to help update some of the plans for the town’s wastewater facilities. Commonwealth Engineers plans to update the long-term control plan for the town’s wastewater treatment plant.

According to a representative with the firm, the updated plan would help the town make decisions about future wastewater improvements and anticipate needs that may arise.

Last week, a public hearing was held on North Judson’s application for a pre-development planning grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Development office. Commonwealth Engineers says the updated plan will cost a total of $37,500. The grant is estimated to cover 75-percent of that cost.

North Judson Clerk-Treasurer Alicia Collins says the plan would tie into the work being undertaken by Commonwealth Engineers on the town’s water towers.
