PALMVIEW, Texas — In an effort to provide safe drinking water for residents, Congressman Henry Cuellar announced $6 million in North America Development Bank (NADB) funding for the Agua Special Utility District (SUD) project.
This project will provide first-time access to wastewater collection and treatment services for nearly 2,000 households in Palmview.
According to a release, the project will reduce environmental and health hazards with the treatment of wastewater and provide a cleaner environment for its residents.
“Our community deserves safe drinking water and a strong wastewater treatment system that keeps our water clean,” said Congressman Cuellar. “This federal investment will provide wastewater treatment and collection, creating both economic and health advantages for the city. As a senior member of the Appropriations Committee, I will continue to fight for funding to modernize our water infrastructure that will expand public health and economic growth in our community.”
