BOISE — The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) today announced the award of a $150,000 in drinking water construction assistance to the Yellow Pine Water Users Association, Inc. in Valley County, Idaho.
The funding will be used to replace the damaged transmission and distribution water mains and install three pressure-reducing valves.
The assistance from DEQ’s State Revolving Loan Fund, which is capitalized annually by grants from the US Environmental Protection Agency, provides this funding with no repayment obligation. The favorable loan terms represent a $205,146 savings to the community when compared to average costs for municipal general obligation debt issuances.
