OCRA Grant Announcement!


Thank you to the Indiana Office of Community & Rural Affairs for the grant award!  The Town of Kirklin is awarded $700,000 for improvements to the town’s wastewater treatment plant and collection system. The wastewater treatment plant improvements include new wet weather storage facilities, a new mechanical fine screen and a new influent pump station. The project will also rehabilitate portions of the sanitary sewers deemed the highest priority problem areas associated with infiltration/inflow.  The project will benefit residents by addressing a failing wastewater treatment plant, addressing current health and safety issues, and helping keep wastewater rates affordable for residents.
