Construction of the replacement of the Benton WWTF is financed by the Water pollution Control State Revolving Fund (SRF). The SRF program is administered by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and receives a portion of its money to fund these types of projects from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. This project includes construction of a new wastewater treatment facility which includes a headworks with grit removal, an oxidation ditch, 2 clarifiers, UV disinfection, a sludge pump station, sludge digester, sludge handling facilities and lab building. Once complete, it will improve water quality in the environment for area residents and businesses in Benton by improving the discharge quality from the wastewater treatment facility. SRF programs operate in each state to provide communities the resources necessary to build, maintain, and improve the infrastructure that protects one of our most valuable resources: water.
