Grant City Receives SEARCH Grant for Wastewater Treatment

The USDA announced today that the City of Grant City will receive a Special Evaluation Assistance for Rural Communities and Households (SEARCH) grant. The funds will be used to assist in obtaining a preliminary engineering report regarding needed improvements to the wastewater system.

The Missouri DNR has been pushing communities, including Sheridan and Grant City, to upgrade their wastewater systems. The City of Grant City has been in the process of planning upgrades and getting price quotes. By federal law, state DNR’s must have clean water plans that are at least as stringent as federal plans, or the EPA will take over regulation of water systems.
