Among those is phase one of the Lake Barkley Water District’s water system improvement plan, for which $5.9 million has been requested. Additionally, $870,000 has been requested for a replacement for Cadiz’s IGA water tank, Sutton said.
About $1.6 million has been requested for Cadiz Water and Sewer’s wastewater treatment plant expansion, with $900,000 requested for Cadiz sewer main replacement, according to Sutton.
Additionally, a total of $107 million has been requested for improvements to Fort Campbell, part of which is in Trigg County, said Sutton.
The money for these projects is part of Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear’s $3 billion “Kentucky at Work” initiative, which according to Jay Blanton, at the governor’s communication office, consists of funding from the federal government that will be invested in the state over the next 28 months.
Statewide, $900 million will go to Medicaid over the next two years, $120 million will go into the state’s general fund and $924 million will go toward education, among other expenses, Blanton said.
