Granby Wastewater

The city of granby is trying to get a community block grant - so it can upgrade its wastewater treatment plant.

This is koam news at six.

For granby to get the grant, the state of missouri needs hundreds of surveys filled out by the people of granby.

Fortunately, a volunteer group is helping with the leg-work.

Koam's mike mahoney visited granby to learn more.

Reggie bard and the granby volunteer group are doing what they do best --- lending their hometown a helping hand.

"our city has a lot of needs at the moment.

Any money we can save them for more important stuff would be great."

The group is currently saving granby a few thousand dollars, by going door-to-door to 375 granby residences, and getting folks to fill out a survey, that will determine if granby is eligible for a community block grant.

"mostly the state wants to know how many people live in a house, what the average income of that household is, and the background of the people that live there."

If granby is deemed eligible for the grant, it will use the funds to bring about three major improvements to its roughly 30-yearold wastewater treatment plant -- as well as the city sewer system.

City officials want to increase the capacity of their main pumping station -- find out where rain water is getting into the sewer sytem -- and build a storm water retention basin, near the plant.

"during times of heavy rain, we can pump that excess water to this basin, and then as the rain subsides, we can bring it through the treatment plant and treat it.

Prior to that, too much water could come into the treatment plant and just wreck your treatment capabilities."

But those upgrades will remain a pipe dream, until the granby volunteer group completes their job.

But the group says it won't take long, since they don't really consider the job to be "work," and love talking to their neighbors.

"everybody you talk to wants to see wants to see granby grow and get better.

I haven't had one comment yet about this not being a good idea."
