Seal Rock Water District Funding Awarded $11.9M
For Source Water Improvements
SEAL ROCK – The United States Department of Agriculture Rural Development (USDA-RD) has announced an award of $11.9 million in funding to the Seal Rock Water District (SRWD) to complete needed source water improvements between now and 2021. This funding provided by the USDA-RD is the most recent award in a long-term, strategic effort of SRWD to leverage the revenue dollars of its small community and increase the potential impact of improvements to Seal Rock’s expanding water system.
This pledge has led SRWD to successfully acquire over $15M in partner funding in the last two years.
The District is very pleased with such a positive outcome from months of advanced planning, hard work and commitment on the part of the District’s Board of Commissioners along with consultants and staff. In this challenging economy, tapping external resources and partnerships to promote sustainability in developing a more resilient source water supply system is absolutely critical. Funding from grants like these allow SRWD to offer our customers even more value for their dollar.
