Press Releases

U.S. Congressman Hal Rogers (KY-05) announced today that the U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development program (USDA-RD) has awarded a $198,000 grant and $462,000 loan to the Bronston Water Association, Inc. to replace approximately 3 miles of deteriorating waterline.

“Ensuring that everyone in Pulaski County has access to clean and sanitary water has long been a priority of mine,” said Rogers. “I applaud USDA-RD for their efforts to ensure that waterlines are repaired and infrastructure is in place to provide clean, healthy drinking water. Basic infrastructure used to be a barrier for development, but by improving our water systems we not only improve the health of our communities, we help keep and attract businesses and increase the potential for sustainable job creation.”

The funding from USDA-RD will be used to replace the 6-inch waterline in the KY Hwy 790, Twin Rivers Road, and Old KY 90 Loop Areas of Bronston in order to provide a dependable water supply for 2,246 customers in rural Pulaski County. USDA-RD’s Water and Waste Disposal Loan and Grant program is designed to develop water and waste disposal systems, including solid waste disposal and storm drainage, in rural areas and towns with a population of 10,000 or less.

Through his role as a senior member of the House Appropriations Committee, Rogers works to secure funding for valuable initiatives in the Fifth Congressional District.
