Federal dollars to help build city sewers
The Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) of 2022 passed by the House of Representatives authorizes $50 million for wastewater and stormwater projects in northern Missouri-including $3.3 million for wastewater projects in Camden Point.
“Right now, the City of Camden Point doesn’t have a municipal sewage system,” said Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Ranking Member Sam Graves (MO-06). “This program will help them build one, replacing the need for aging individual septic systems. That should help the city accommodate future growth so they can keep their elementary school here in the local community.”
Now that WRDA 2022 has passed the House of Representatives, it heads to the Senate for further consideration. The program will be subject to appropriations if it is ultimately signed into law. Graves said securing funding for this critical program will be a top priority for him.
Graves joined Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chair Peter DeFazio (D-OR), Water Resources and Environment Subcommittee Chair Grace F. Napolitano (D-CA), and Water Resources and Environment Subcommittee Ranking Member David Rouzer (R-NC) in introducing H.R. 7776 last month.
