Quinn promises Spring Valley money for the sewage plant

Posted by wlpo on November 13, 2013

The record-setting flood in April put Spring Valley’s wastewater treatment plant under water.  They’re hoping that won’t happen again. 

The city is receiving $9.5 million to overhaul and repair the plant.  Governor Pat Quinn made the announcement during a visit to the Illinois Valley Regional Airport in Peru Wednesday.

The money would pay for renovations that would put it in compliance with the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency. The work should be complete by 2017.
