City of Flemingsburg Receives $284,774 from ARC
Funding for Improvements to the City’s Wastewater System

FRANKFORT, KY. (June 4, 2018) – The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) approved $284,774 in funding to the City of Flemingsburg to make several improvements in portions of the city’s wastewater system. The project will address recurring failures from the clay pipe service lines, originally installed in the 1960s.

“I am pleased the ARC approved funding to assist the City of Flemingsburg in enhancing portions of the city’s wastewater system,” said Department for Local Government Commissioner Sandra Dunahoo. “This strategic investment will go to correct systemic problems and reduce overall maintenance expenses from recurring failure. The project will directly impact local residents, families, and businesses by improving overall capacity, efficiency, and safety. It is one of the most important sewer projects in the region.”

The ARC support for this project will help to install 2,700 linear feet of new piping, realign 20 manholes, clean over 2,700 linear feet of existing sewer line, and complete mechanical root cleaning of 1,400 linear feet of sewer line. In addition to the $284,774 awarded by the ARC, the City of Flemingsburg has committed $132,046 in local investment toward this project for a total of $416,820. The Buffalo Trace Regional Water Management Council has designated this project as a top priority in the county.

The ARC program and policy is to provide assistance for residential infrastructure projects, water supply and wastewater treatment projects to assist in alleviating environmental public health concerns and ensure the acceptable quality of life for local residents.
