SW Missouri town gets $900K for water improvements

KANSAS CITY, KS (AP) - A southwest Missouri town has been awarded a grant of more than $900,000 to make improvements to its wastewater collection system.

The Environmental Protection Agency's regional office in Kansas City, Kan., announced the grant for the unincorporated town of Jane in McDonald County. The community will get $936,000 for a project that aims to eliminate the use of 130 septic systems.

The EPA said the septic systems have been creating pollution. They'll be replaced with pump stations and pipeline connecting to a wastewater treatment plant in nearby Bella Vista, Ark.
