Clayton, Champion To Receive Funds For Water, Sewer Improvements
Two Jefferson County communities will receive grants and loans totaling $1.15 million to upgrade their water and sewer systems.
That announcement comes from Congressman Bill Owens.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has approved a loan of $318,000 and a grant of $362,000 for the town of Champion and a $470,000 grant for the village of Clayton.
Champion will use the money to develop a consolidated source for its water supply. The loan will be paid back over 38 years at 2 percent interest.
Clayton plans to upgrade portions of its existing sewer system and pumping stations.
Clayton's pumping stations serve not only village residents, but also the Heritage Heights sewer district and Cape Vincent's medium security prison.
