Yankton receives millions to improve their wastewater systems


The City of Yankton is given two-million dollars from the U.S. Economic Development Administration.

The wastewater collection, transmission, and treatment systems need to be improved because of flooding and erosion that occurred in 2011.

The project is funded through the 2012 Disaster Relief Opportunity Program.

South Dakota Senator Tim Johnson said, "This is a very important project and these funds will help ensure the necessary investments in Yankton's wastewater infrastructure to more fully recover from the 2011 flooding and better withstand future natural disasters."
