Hoeven Announces More Than $3.3 Million In Loans, $2.6 Million In Grants For Waste Infrastructure Improvement Projects In New Town & Beach

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, chairman of the Senate Agriculture Appropriations Committee, today announced that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development has approved funding for waste management infrastructure in Beach and New Town. Details of the funding are as follows:

  • City of New Town – nearly $2.9 million loan, $2.3 million grant – the funds will be used to improve the city’s sewage lagoon to help accommodate population growth.
  • City of Beach – $482,000 loan, $307,243 grant – the funds will be used to build a new sewer lift station and install about 4,000 feet of force main, replacing a more than 50 year old sewer system.

“Without these important waste management improvements, New Town and Beach would not be able to adequately serve their current residents and accommodate growth in population,” said Hoeven. “Today’s funding will not only improve residents’ quality of life, but will lay the foundation for community development.”
