South Sioux City has been awarded a $12.2 million federal grant to support the construction of a new waste water treatment plant.

City Administrator Lance Hedquist says the plant would be constructed on the city’s south end to support business growth:

OC…….should be done. :29

South Sioux City does not have its own wastewater plant, and uses Sioux City’s.

Last November 26th, the City of Sioux City issued a Notice of Termination of the agreement with South Sioux, giving four years from that date to secure services elsewhere:

OC…………other communities. :13

Hedquist says part of South Sioux will likely still be included in a wastewater agreement with Sioux City:

OC………to go to Sioux City. :09

That would also include the new Flatwater Crossing housing development near the riverfront.

The grant will be matched with $12.2 million in local investment and is expected to create nearly 60 jobs and spur $160 million in private investment.
