Miami — Alan Stephens, State Director for USDA Rural Development, on Jan. 23 joined city staff and elected officials for a groundbreaking for a new wastewater collection system, grit separator and pump station for the Town of Miami.

The system will connect to the newly completed wastewater treatment plant built by the Freeport McMoRan mining company.

Congressman Ed Pastor was there to help break ground, along with representatives from Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick’s and Senator Jeff Flake’s offices.

USDA Rural Development provided nearly $5 million in initial funding for the project in 2012 with the expectation that the addition funds would be phased in. The additional funding became available this year and the agency provided $19,529,282 in loan and grant funding to be able to complete the collection project.
