The project consists of advanced treatment improvements to meet nutrient limits, rehabilitation of existing treatment facility components, and CIPP lining of sanitary sewerlines.

MN PFA Project Funding Announcement

The City of Windom has undertaken a comprehensive improvement
project at its Wastewater Treatment Plant. The City has secured
public funding for this project that will reduce the nitrogen and
phosphorus content of its effluent and to better serve the residents
and businesses of the City of Windom.
The contract for the improvement was awarded on January 2, 2019
in the amount of $18,941.979. Funding for the project comes from the
following:

  1. Minnesota Public Facilities Authority $9,624,333 (of which a
    portion comes from US EPA funds);
  2. Point Source Implementation Grant funds $6,317,646 (funding
    appropriated by the Minnesota Legislature from the Clean
    Water Land & Legacy Fund & state general obligation bonds); and
  3. State Appropriation Grant funds awarded by the State
    Legislature $3,000,000. This was previously awarded on October 30, 2018.

More about the Minnesota Public Facilities Authority and its Programs:
The Minnesota Public Facilities Authority (PFA) provides financing and technical assistance to help communities build public infrastructure that protects public health and the environment and promotes economic growth.


Clean Water Revolving Fund (also known as the Clean Water State Revolving Fund or CWSRF):

The CWSRF is supported by federal capitalization grants from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and state matching funds. These funds, together with PFA revenue bond proceeds, are used to make low interest loans to cities throughout the state for wastewater and stormwater infrastructure projects. Loan repayments revolve back to make new loans, providing a permanent source of low-interest capital to help cities finance clean water infrastructure projects. Since its start in 1990,Minnesota’s CWSRF has awarded more than 530 loans for over $3 billion, providing over $667 million in interest savings to local governments and their taxpayers.


Point Source Implementation Grants (PSIG):
The PSIG program provides grants to help cities upgrade water treatment facilities to reduce their discharge of specific pollutants to meet water quality restoration and protection goals.
