Several Triad communities will soon benefit from clean water infrastructure funding. 

Governor Roy Cooper toured Yadkin and Surry counties on Tuesday to tout the state’s investment in shoring up water and wastewater infrastructure.

Four million dollars is being directed to the Yadkin Valley Sewer Authority in Elkin for improvements in the floodplain resiliency wastewater collection system.

Jonesville will receive $15 million for water treatment upgrades, along with meter and water line replacement.

This is part of an overall state plan to invest $2.3 billion over two years in water and wastewater infrastructure projects.

The money comes from a combination of federal funding, state reserve funds, and state budget allocations.

While in the Piedmont, Cooper said the latest round of grants “will give families and business owners in Jonesville, Elkin and Ronda more confidence in their infrastructure so they can continue to grow.”
