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.
