Graham Announces Dillon County Water Company to Receive $1.595 Million in USDA Funds

WASHINGTON- U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today announced the U.S. Department of Agriculture has awarded a $296,000 grant and approved a $1.299 million loan to Trico Water Company in Dillon County. The funds will be used for the installation of water lines in the Bingham area of Dillon County, and the installation of transmission lines from the Fred Hyatt Water Treatment Plant to connect with the existing treatment system at the I-95 and SC-38 interchange. This project is expected to benefit over 5,400 households and numerous commercial and industrial users. “This project will help Trico more effectively serve the people of Dillon County,” said Graham. “It will increase their ability to provide a reliable source of water to residents, and more efficiently dispose of waste. This money improves lives, and makes the area more attractive for economic development.”
