(Projects in the US/Mexico Region receive funding)….There are six new environmental infrastructure projects approved.
Earlier this month the Board of Directors of the Border Environment Cooperation commission and the North American Development Bank met in Matamoros, Mexico. They approved the financing and certification of the projects for a total of $44.59 million. The funding will be through loans and grants. Two wastewater system improvement projects were approved for Holtville. One project replaces the sewer main that conveys all of the collected wastewater to the treatment plant. The second project expands the sewer system to a currently unserved area. These projects will be funded through a grant.
