Construction of Mascoutah Sewage Treatment Plant Facility Improvements located at 511 S 10th Street is financed by the Water Pollution Control Loan Program State Revolving Fund (SRF). The SRF program is administered by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and receives a portion of its money to fund these types of projects from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. This project will expand the capacity and capability of the Mascoutah Sewage Treatment Plant. Construction includes site improvements, new administration/laboratory building, influent fine screen, sequencing batch reactor treatment system, tertiary filter and building, aerobic digester modifications, effluent flume, and other appurtenances. Once complete, it will improve water quality for area residents and businesses in and around the City of Mascoutah by allowing the City to maintain the quality of the water that is discharged to Silver Creek. SRF programs operate in each state to provide communities the resources necessary to build, maintain, and improve the infrastructure that protects one of our most valuable resources: water. The $13,601,000 loan has an interest rate of 1.15% and will be repaid over 20 years.
