AUSTIN – (July 23, 2015) – The Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) today approved by resolution financial assistance in the amount of $410,000 from the Clean Water State Revolving Fund to the City of Hudson (Angelina County). The City will be able to finance planning and design costs associated with replacing its wastewater treatment plant.

The City could save approximately $60,600 over the life of the loan by using the Clean Water State Revolving Fund.

The City's wastewater treatment plant was built in 1978 and has reached the end of its useful service life.
