(Kansas City, Kan., May 11, 2010) - EPA has awarded $936,000 to the McDonald County, Mo., Public Water Supply District for the construction of a new wastewater collection system in the Village of Jane, Mo.

EPA Region 7 Administrator Karl Brooks said, "It's always a pleasure to help Missouri communities better protect their water resources. These EPA funds will help build a better system that safeguards the crystal streams and vital groundwater that make the Ozarks a national treasure."

The project is designed to eliminate 130 septic systems which have been polluting ground and surface waters in the Village of Jane. A series of pump stations and pipelines will be constructed to convey the wastewater to the existing Bella Vista, Ark., wastewater treatment plant.

EPA oversees the protection of water quality and public health. The Agency is working with community leaders and the public to meet the growing needs and demands of our limited water resources. EPA remains committed to developing innovative and sustainable solutions for managing and financing infrastructure with public and private partners.
