Grant to help with sewer repairs

Staff Writer

Additional funding is headed toward Grenada for much needed sewer improvements in the city’s southern section.

The City of Grenada has been approved for a grant through the Delta Regional Authority’s Community Infrastructure Fund (CIF).

On Tuesday, the Delta Regional Authority announced that it has invested $4.4 million to strengthen Mississippi’s economy and infrastructure.

$250,000 for Work

According to Grenada City Manager Trey Baker, $250,000 of that money will go toward infrastructure improvements in Grenada.

“This award will be used to fund an emergency replacement for the sewer lift station on Highway 51 South or what is known as the Modine Lift Station,” Baker said. “The replacement of this lift station will help to improve the health and sanitation for the 1,200 residential customers located in that area.”
