Rep. Estes Applauds Water Infrastructure Grant for Sedan
WASHINGTON—Congressman Ron Estes (R-Kansas) applauded a grant awarded today to the city of Sedan by the Rural Development office within the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The $400,000 grant will replace water lines across Sedan, including some of the city's original lead pipes installed in 1935.
"This is great news for Sedan and Chautauqua County," said Rep. Estes. "Water infrastructure is key to economic development and improving quality of life. I want to thank the USDA for supporting this project and investing in the Fourth District."
This project will ensure Sedan is in compliance with standards set by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. Previous funding for this project has included $5.16 million in Rural Development loans and grants.
Ron Estes is a 5th generation Kansan and represents Kansas’ 4th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. He serves on the House Committee on Ways and Means.
