The assistance will allow the PPWSC to finance construction costs associated with rehabilitating and expanding its water treatment plant.
PPWSC could save approximately $255,109 over the life of the loan by using the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund.
In October 2012, TWDB approved financial assistance to PPWSC for the planning and design phase of the project. With that phase now complete, PPWSC is ready to move forward with construction. The assistance will allow an increase in the capacity of the water treatment plant and the raw water pumps and provide additional system improvements.
TWDB is the state agency charged with collecting and disseminating water-related data, assisting with regional planning and preparing the state water plan for the development of the state’s water resources. TWDB administers cost-effective financial assistance programs for the construction of water supply, wastewater treatment, flood control and agricultural water conservation projects.
