AUSTIN – (May 9, 2019) – The Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) today approved by resolution financial assistance in the amount of $14,685,000, consisting of a $10,435,000 loan and $4,250,000 in loan forgiveness, from the Clean Water State Revolving Fund to the City of Brady (McCulloch County). The City will use the assistance to finance construction costs associated with wastewater system improvements.
In addition to the loan forgiveness, the City could save approximately $3.6 million by using the Clean Water State Revolving Fund.
