Notice of Public Hearing for Philip Wastewater & Storm Sewer Project


The City of Philip is proposing to undertake wastewater and storm sewer systems improvements in the southwest area of the city as part of an overall utility and street improvements project. Wastewater improvements include replacement of sanitary sewer lines and manholes, plus necessary appurtenances. Storm sewer improvements include curb and gutter replacement, and installation of underground storm sewer pipe, plus necessary appurtenances. The total cost of the southwest utilities and street improvements are estimated to cost approximately $2,700,000. The City of Philip is seeking up to $1,600,000 of funding from the Board of Water and Natural Resources for the wastewater project and up to $850,000 of funding for the storm sewer project. There will be two separate applications to SDDENR. The funds could be either a grant from the state Consolidated Water Facilities Construction Program or a loan from the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (SRF) Program. The expected Clean Water SRF loan terms are 2.5 percent for 30 years, and the Board of Water and Natural Resources may forgive all or a portion of the loan principal. The amount and source of funds will be determined by the Board of Water and Natural Resources when the applications are presented at a scheduled board meeting. The purpose of the public hearing is to discuss the proposed projects, the proposed financing, and the source of repayment for the loans. The public is invited to attend and comment on the project.

The public hearing will be held at the Community Room in the Haakon County Courthouse in Philip on December 4, 2017 at 7:20 p.m.
