MONTICELLO – Billed as the largest infrastructure project in the Village of Monticello history, the new $20.5 million water resource recovery facility will be formally dedicated tomorrow (Wednesday).
The facility will provide treatment for and process all of the sanitary sewer flows in the village. Monticello’s old facility was built in 1984.
Financing came from a grant of $11.9 million and a low-interest loan of $8.5 million through the US Department of Agriculture’s Rural Development Agency.
“I believe we have delivered a high quality and cost-effective project to our residents and business owners,” said Mayor Douglas Solomon.
“The Village of Monticello’s modernization of its wastewater treatment system will protect public health and safety and improve the quality of life for its residents, and will make the village more business friendly,” said Scott Collins, acting state director of USDA Rural Development.
