The city of Overbrook was one of 12 communities selected to share more than $4 million in water and sewer grants through the Community Development Block Grant program.
Overbrook will receive $400,000 for a sewer project involving collection and treatment system improvements, which will consist of cleaning, TV inspection and upgrade of lines. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment will contribute $420,660.
Water and sewer grants are awarded through an annual competition. The maximum award is $400,000 per project.
The program provides federal funding to Kansas communities to address development and infrastructural needs.
