Culver awarded nearly $1 million for sewer upgrades

It was announced last week that Culver was chosen to receive a federal Disaster Recovery 2 grant of $994,000, for use in $1.4 million in updates and repairs to the town’s sanitary sewer system and plant with no sewer rate increases for residents.
According to Town Council President Sally Ricciardi, the work will include replacing the head works, installing a retention tank for the overflow which occurs in times of heavy rainfall, as well as needed repairs to the sewer plant.
“We are excited about receiving this grant,” said Ricciardi, “as it will be a real cost savings to the community and allow us to complete a number of smaller projects at once that we would not have had the funds to do otherwise.”
The grant was administered through the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs.
