WASHINGTON D.C. - Congressman Denver Riggleman applauded the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Office of Rural Development’s award of a $20,100,000 loan for Wintergreen sewer system improvements.  

“This is a big win for Wintergreen,” said Congressman Riggleman. “The sewer system in Wintergreen is in need of update and repair. This loan will benefit thousands of people in the district and improve their quality of life.”

The loan will be used to update the main sewer plant, which is over 40 years old and in need of updates to keep Wintergreen safe and clean. In addition to replacing the tank, a new pump station and over 150,000 feet of new pipe will be laid to modernize the system.  After campaigning on a promise to increase rural infrastructure, Congressman Riggleman is glad to see progress being made.
