WASHINGTON – U.S. Senators Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) and Roger Marshall, M.D. (R-Kan.) this week announced a $1,558,000 USDA Rural Development low-interest loan awarded to the city of Caldwell to construct new water storage tanks and update the city’s water pump system that is over 100 years old.
“This federal investment will update Caldwell’s aged water service system and help make certain they have reliable access to safe water,” said Sen. Moran. “As a member of the Senate Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee with jurisdiction over USDA, I will continue to advocate for programs that are important to improve the quality of life in our rural communities.”
“Through this USDA loan, the City of Caldwell will be able to construct new tanks for elevated water storage within the community,” said Sen. Marshall. “Residents must have confidence that their water supply is both safe and reliable. This vital update to the city’s aging infrastructure will provide Caldwell residents with peace of mind for years to come.”
