The City of Clarksville will receive a $52,000 loan and a $309,000 grant to improve the City’s water system, according to a press release sent by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

One of five recipients in Missouri, Clarksville plans to use the money to assist them in the cost of a new storage tank, a new Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system and improving the distribution line throughout the City.

The press release stated that the Missouri State Director of the USDA’s Rural Development program, Jeff Case, announced on Tuesday, Dec. 4, “that the USDA is investing over $8 million to five recipients across the state to help rebuild and improve rural water infrastructure.”
