Vinton Snags $7.7m in USDA Funds for Municipal Water System Project

The USDA has awarded the Village of Vinton $7,714,000 in funds for the municipal water system project—$4,805,000 is a grant and $2,909,000 is a low interest loan.

 The project includes capacity buy-in with the El Paso Water system and construction of distribution and service lines that will provide service to approximately 249 households in Phase I. An additional 171 connections are planed for Phase II.

This project will address the arsenic contamination of an existing system that currently serves 40 –50 households and first time water service to others.

USDA officials say Mr. John Perkins, the Area Director for USDA Rural Development will make the official announcement on Wednesday, February 22, 2017 at 4:00 pm, at the Village of Vinton City Hall. Also expected to attend are representatives from the Office of U.S. Representative Beto O’Rourke, Office of State Sen. José Rodriguez, Office of State Representative Joe Moody, and Vinton Mayor Manuel Leos.
