Harrison Receives $3.4M to Help Repair Aging Water Systems

The City of Harrison recently received more than $3-million dollars to repair the city’s water systems.

The United States Department of Agriculture recently gave Harrison a Rural Development loan of $1.2-million dollars and a grant of $2.2-million dollars.

In total, the more than $3-million dollars will go towards upgrading the city’s aging and undersized watermains, improve city wells and make repairs to water towers.

Harrison City Manager Tracey Connelly says, “It was so wonderful for us to get that and getting it as a grant was even more exciting because we try to make our dollar go as far as we can… so we can get more improvements done that are needed.”

Although the grant will not have to be repaid, the $1.2 million dollar loan will, over a 40 year period.
