Today, Congressman Mike Michaud welcomed news that the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA)'s Rural Development division has awarded the Dexter Utility District $1.9 million to update its water infrastructure, including century old water mains.

"Reinvesting in old infrastructure is critical to supporting and maintaining our rural communities," said Michaud. "These USDA funds will ensure quality drinking water and public safety while creating employment opportunities through engineering and construction jobs."

The $1.1 million in Water & Waste Disposal loans and $800,000 in Water & Waste disposal Grant funds will allow the Dexter Utility District to complete construction necessary before the Maine Department of Transportation (MDOT) can proceed with plans for major road work on Route 7.
