St. Charles Parish to get loan to rehabilitate sewer system


HAHNVILLE, La. (AP) — Officials say St. Charles Parish is in line to receive a low-interest $8 million loan from the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality that will be used starting next year to rehabilitate the parish’s sewer system.

The New Orleans Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/2gb94kR) the parish council unanimously passed a resolution authorizing Parish President Larry Cochran to sign the loan, which is to come from the DEQ’s low-interest Clean Water State Revolving Fund.

Offered at a .98 percent annual rate, Public Works Director Clayton Faucheux (FOH’ shay) said the loan will be used to improve pump stations, gravity sewers and a lagoon, along with other miscellaneous sanitary sewer work.

The DEQ administers the revolving fund program to finance eligible projects and bring local systems into compliance with the federal Clean Water Act.
