WASHINGTON, DC - U.S. Senators Gary Peters (MI) and Debbie Stabenow (MI) today announced that the City of Beaverton will receive $851,000 in federal funding to bolster water and wastewater infrastructure. The funding comes from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) as a part of the Water and Waste Disposal Loan and Grant Program.
'Now more than ever, Michigan families are depending on consistent access to clean water and reliable utilities,' said Senator Peters. 'This funding will ensure that the City of Beaverton has the resources needed to complete critical water and wastewater infrastructure improvements.'
'We can no longer take for granted the infrastructure that keeps the water coming out of our faucets clean and our beaches safe for swimming,' said Senator Stabenow. 'These investments are critically important for the health and economic wellbeing of the community, and to avoid the kind of crises in recent years that have closed beaches across the state and forced residents in too many Michigan communities to drink bottled water.'
