  • Tuesday, July 15, 2014

House Assistant Democratic Leader and SC Congressman James E. Clyburn announced recently two Department of Agriculture grants awarded to South Carolina and the 6th Congressional District.

The Town of Kingstree will receive $22,500 from the United States Department of Agriculture for a Water and Waste Disposal Pre-Development Grant.  The rural development funds will be used for a preliminary engineering report as the town is looking at an expansion Waste Water Treatment Plant in order to serve more of the underserved area in the community.

The Town of Santee will receive $25,000 from the United States Department of Agriculture for a Water and Waste Disposal Pre-Development Grant.  The town is seeking grant funds for a PER to investigate the possibility of expanding both its water and sewer systems to serve more of this underserved area of SC. 

“The towns of Kingstree and Santee will benefit tremendously from receiving these two grants from the Department of Agriculture,” Congressman Clyburn said.  “These grants allow these towns to enhance and develop their water and sewer systems which give them an advantage in rural South Carolina.”
