Governor announces over $127,000 for Central Illinois water and sewer projects
Five Illinois communities to benefit from local projects

CHICAGO - Governor Rod R. Blagojevich today authorized over $127,000 in grants for five projects in Berlin, Petersburg, Rockbridge, Sawyerville and White Hall.  The projects are for various water and sewer improvements.
“The people of Illinois have the right to expect their state and local governments to provide the necessary resources for projects that are important to their health and quality of life, such as safe and reliable sources of water and dependable sewer systems,” said Governor Blagojevich. 
The projects being funded include a grant for $50,000 to the Village of Sawyerville to renovate the village water system.  The current system is unable to meet Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) quality standards due to a low chlorine content.  The grant is being used to offset the cost of a Myox feed station to treat the water.
A list of the projects is attached:
