Water project monies increased under Senator Bennett provision
Utah communities may soon be eligible for an additional $25 million in federal assistance to help fund local water infrastructure projects.
Because of a provision Sen. Bob Bennett included in the Water Resource Development Act the bill passed the U.S. Senate on May 25.
"The program has been extremely successful in Utah, helping our smaller communities develop cleaner water supplies and construct new water projects that would have not been possible without these funds," said Bennett.
