New Plan Revealed to Comply with Federal Regulations

- The Regional Water Resource Agency in Owensboro is working on a new plan for the Environmental Protection Agency that will help Ohio River communities comply with the Clean Water Act of 1972.

The new plan calls for nearly $56 million in spending on 29 projects over the next 15 years.

Executive Director David Hawes says some projects include a new southwest master pump station that's estimated to cost $6.8 million,and relining pipes in various locations that should cost $7.5 million.

According to the RWRA, the plan must be approved by the Kentucky Division of Water and the Environmental Protection Agency. Officials say the capital plan will be submitted in September.
