Holstein Awarded Grant for Water Quality Project

The City of Holstein is among several Iowa communities awarded a grant to advance water quality projects.

Holstein is receiving a 500-thousand dollar grant. The total cost of their clean water project is nearly seven-million dollars.

In all, 16 communities are getting a total of eight-million dollars. The funding is made available through the Wastewater and Drinking Water Treatment Financial Assistance Program, created as part of the first legislation signed into law by Governor Reynolds in 2018.

Priorities for grant awards include disadvantaged communities, projects that will significantly improve water quality in their watershed, projects that use alternative wastewater treatment technologies, communities with the highest sewer or water rates, projects that use technology to address nutrient reduction, and projects to address improvements to drinking water source waters. Grants will be awarded through the program annually through the year 2039.
