SRF loans go to water quality projects in Appanoose, Dallas and Warren counties 

DES MOINES — The Iowa Finance Authority recently approved a combined total of $21.4 million in low-cost water quality loans to move projects forward in Appanoose, Dallas and Warren counties. The financing is made available through State Revolving Fund construction loans, which offer three percent interest rates. The State Revolving Fund is a partnership between the Iowa Finance Authority and the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.

“The Iowa Finance Authority is proud to partner with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources in supporting more than 500 large and small water quality projects in urban and rural communities all throughout the state and look forward to assisting many more,” said Iowa Finance Authority Executive Director Dave Jamison.

The Rathbun Regional Water Association received a $5.38 million State Revolving Fund Construction Loan to assist with the next phase of the new water treatment plant located at Rathbun Lake. The project will include the installment of the intake superstructure and is expected to be complete in the summer of 2012.

“Rathbun Regional Water Association provides quality water to nearly 19,000 rural families, farms and communities,” said RRWA Chief Financial Officer Rod Glosser. “The new lake intake was necessary to enable RRWA to meet the growing water demands of southeast Iowa as well as provide a more reliable source of water. The intake superstructure will include variable frequency drives, standby emergency generation and a highly efficient potassium permanganate feed system, which will ultimately assist in maintaining affordable water rates for the residents of the RRWA service area.”

The city of Redfield, in Dallas County, received a $1.7 million SRF construction loan to assist in the financing of a new water treatment plant and the demolition of the existing water treatment plant. The new plant will be located adjacent to the existing city-owned maintenance facility and is estimated to be complete in the winter of 2012-2013.

The Des Moines Metropolitan Wastewater Reclamation Authority received a $14.4 million SRF construction loan to aid in the improvement of two treatment facilities in Warren County. The Southwest Area Diversion Facility, located in Norwalk, will use the SRF loan to assist in an upgrade to the current wastewater collection system. The SRF financing will also assist in an expansion of the Southern High Flow Pump Station. The projects are expected to be complete in the fall of 2013.

Construction Loans are made available as part of the SRF. For more information on construction loans, as well as other State Revolving Fund programs, visit www.IowaSRF.com.

The Iowegian wants readers to think about the solicitation ordinance that will prevent groups or individuals from entering a roadway to solicit money. The Centerville City Council in June by a 5-0 vote passed the first reading of just such an ordinance. Public pressure and during a subsequent special meeting, the council voted 3-2 to table the ordinance. A second special meeting to discuss the solicitation ordinance is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 7 at City Hall. So, the question of the week is, "Do you or do you not support the ordinance to prevent solicitation of funds in city streets?"

A. I support the ordinance
B. I do not support the ordinance
C. Not sure
