Lake Worth Receives Funding for Drinking Water Infrastructure
The Drinking Water State Revolving Fund Program recently executed a $568,432 Drinking Water State Revolving Fund loan to assist the City of Lake Worth with replacing water pipes in their distribution system. Over 17 miles of 2-inch corroded water pipes will be fixed by replacing with them with larger 4-inch piping designed for long-term use. This will provide better quality water to approximately 12,000 residences. It is the first phase of a six phase project expected to be completed over the next five years with a total estimated project cost of $14.8M.
Florida's Drinking Water State Revolving Fund is administered by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection with joint funding from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the State of Florida.
