City Awarded $40K Small Community Engineering Assistance Program Grant

 

Marceline, MO - On December 3, 2015, the City of Marceline took a step forward in improving its infrastructure.  The City was awarded a $40,000.00 Small Community Engineering Assistance Program (SCEAP) Grant by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources (DNR).  Mayor Josh Shoemaker and Water/Wastewater Superintendent Kevin Wiggins accepted the Grant from DNR Environmental Specialist, Kelsey Kempker, at a ceremony held at City Hall (pictured right).   City Manager Richard Hoon formally signed the acceptance documentation. 

 

The SCEAP Grant will be used for the development of a facility plan that will evaluate potential upgrades to the City's Wastewater Treatment Facility and system to meet DNR requirements.  These upgrades are necessary in order to meet expected new ammonia limits.  The facility plan will also conduct a recreational Use Attainability Analysis (UAA) on the Wastewater Treatment Facility's receiving stream.  In addition, the facility plan will evaluate the City's wastewater pump station for necessary improvements.

 

"This grant is another positive step in improving the City’s wastewater infrastructure, and we will continue to seek additional funding opportunities needed to provide quality services to the citizens of Marceline,” said City Manager Richard Hoon.

 

The total amount of the project is expected to be $50,000.00, with $40,000.00 to be in grant funds and the remaining $10,000.00 to be funded by the City of Marceline.  During the application process, which began in April of this year, Allstate Consultants, LLC was selected through an evaluation process to provide the services for this project. 

 

The City has until December 14, 2017 to complete the project.
