Bingen To Seek Federal Funds For Reservoir Replacement

The City of Bingen will be applying for a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development program to replace the city’s water reservoir.  Bingen Mayor Betty Barnes says the project has been on their radar for some time.  The reservoir was constructed in 1948.  Barnes adds the City is loaning its water fund money from its sewer fund to cover the cost of a recent emergency reservoir repair when its control system malfunctioned.
