Sens. Marshall, Moran Announce $30,000 in USDA Funding for City of Burden

(Washington, D.C., July 22, 2021) – U.S. Senators Roger Marshall, M.D. and Jerry Moran announced a $30,000 USDA Rural Development grant awarded to the city of Burden to fund an evaluation of the wastewater system to determine the necessary changes needed for the development of a financially feasible final sewer project.

“The City of Burden’s wastewater collection systems are in need of rehabilitation and repair,” said Senator Marshall. “Through this Water and Waste Disposal Predevelopment Planning Grant, Burden will be able to evaluate its wastewater collections system, reduce inflow and infiltration causing overflows, and determine the necessary improvements needed for their sewer. This vital update to Burden’s aging infrastructure will provide residents with confidence in the city’s future plans for utility improvements.”

“This federal investment will support Burden as it takes the necessary steps to update and improve its wastewater system,” said Senator Moran. “As a member of the Senate Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee with jurisdiction over USDA, I will continue to advocate for programs that improve the quality of life in our rural communities.”
