EPWater to seek grant for Montana Vista sewer project

At a March 24 meeting, El Paso Water staff will announce funding opportunities and update Montana Vista residents on a project that will bring first-time sanitary service to 2,400 homes.

Montana Vista Sanitary Sewer System Project Update Meeting
When: Friday, March 24
6 p.m.
Where: Montana Vista Elementary School
3550 Mark Jason Drive

Montana Vista has had water service for decades, but residents do not have a sewer collection system. EPWater received a $2.8 million grant in 2015 from the Texas Water Development Board's Economically Distressed Areas Program. The grant funded the cost of designing the system, but not construction costs.

Staff will update residents on the project at the meeting, including plans to apply for a USDA Office of Rural Development grant for construction. The meeting is open to the public, and written and oral comments will be accepted.

For information about the meeting, contact Project Manager Gerardo Gomez at (915) 594-5658 or Maureen Hankins at (915) 594-5524.
