USDA Assists Moorefield with Water Improvements

(402) 437-5563

The Village of Moorefield will receive $20,100 from USDA Rural Development for water system improvements.

“Our Village is small and has very limited resources and we are grateful that these funds are available to help in times of emergency,” said Board Chairperson Turena Ehlers, Village of Moorefield.

“The Village of Moorefield had an emergency with one of its water wells, and the remaining well was not large enough to supply water to the town. We were fortunate to be able to utilize the Emergency Community Water Assistance Grant program to assist the village with the costs of the needed emergency repairs so that Moorefield was able to get the repairs done quickly and got the town back in service,” said USDA Rural Development Community Programs Specialist, Natalie Furrow.

This project was funded through the USDA Rural Development Emergency Community Water Assistance Grants program.  Visit:  http://www.rd.usda.gov/programs-services/emergency-community-water-assistance-grants

President Obama’s plan for rural America has brought about historic investment and resulted in stronger rural communities. Under the President’s leadership, these investments in housing, community facilities, businesses and infrastructure have empowered rural America to continue leading the way – strengthening America’s economy, small towns and rural communities. USDA’s investments in rural communities support the rural way of life that stands as the backbone of our American values.
