New Haven, Missouri – The city of New Haven has received a significant boost to its wastewater management efforts thanks to a $50,000 grant from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. This Clean Water Engineering Report Grant is a significant step forward in assessing the city’s wastewater system and planning necessary improvements.

Enhancing Wastewater Management

The grant is part of a broader initiative to support communities in evaluating and upgrading their water and wastewater systems. New Haven plans to use these funds to conduct a thorough review of its wastewater infrastructure. The goal is to identify key areas that need improvement to ensure the system remains reliable, meets environmental permit requirements, and reduces the infiltration of stormwater into sewer pipes. The completion of the facility plan is anticipated by September 2025, setting a clear timeline for progress.

Dru Buntin, the director of the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, highlighted the importance of such funding in facilitating wastewater treatment upgrades across communities of all sizes in Missouri. He emphasized the role of the Clean Water State Revolving Fund in enabling municipalities to undertake necessary infrastructure enhancements that might otherwise be beyond their financial reach.

This initiative underscores the department’s commitment to assisting Missouri’s communities with their water quality, wastewater, and drinking water infrastructure needs. By using funds received from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the department is providing significant financial support for projects that improve the quality of life for Missourians and protect the environment.
