ST.PAUL, Minn. – Mantorville is getting $2.34 million from the state to connect its sewer system to the treatment plant in Kasson.

“The Mantorville-Kasson sewer project represents more than a decade of planning, cooperation and hard work,” said Shawntera Hardy, commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development. “This project is a great example of how two communities can work together to provide improved services for local residents.”

Mantorville decided to link to Kasson’s treatment plant rather than renovate its own existing facility along the Zumbro River. Kasson will be paid a yearly fee, based on water flow levels.

The Minnesota Public Facilities Authority will pay for a new sewer lift station and force main.

“Communities across Minnesota face serious water quality challenges,” said Governor Mark Dayton. “Last spring, I worked with the Minnesota Legislature to establish a grant program to help cities afford to make water quality improvements. These grants and loans will help the residents of Mantorville to afford the clean water they deserve.”

Since 1987, the Minnesota Public Facilities Authority says it has financed $4.5 billion in public infrastructure projects.
