As part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), the City of La Feria has received a loan award from the Texas Water Development Board of $880,000.00 at 0% interest for 20 years to replace the two existing steel water treatment plant filters at the La Feria Water Plant on Dodd Lane. The replacement filter will be a 2.0 MGD (million gallons per day) capacity unit that will upgrade the water treatment system.
A Ground Breaking Ceremony for this project will be held on Monday, May 3, 2010 at the La Feria Municipal Complex grounds, 115 E. Commercial Avenue, La Feria, Texas 78559. The event will start at 9:00 a.m. and the attendees include Congressman Ruben Hinojosa, Mr. Kevin Ward, State-wide Administrator of the Texas Water Development Board and Troy Hill from the EPA-Region VI office, as well as our county and local elected and appointed officials. The public is invited to this event.
