DEFERIET — The state Environmental Facilities Corp. approved a financing package through the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund for the ongoing joint water project by the villages of Deferiet and Herrings.

The project will receive a $2 million grant and a 30-year loan from EFC.

The $4 million joint water project, begun in 2006, is needed because the aging systems in both villages are deteriorating and there is contamination of Herrings water from the former Crown Cleaners property.

Phase one was completed in 2012 with the upgrade of two well houses in Deferiet. Phase two will install a shared water tower, run a water main between the two villages and upgrade the mains in each village.

Meters and fire hydrants also will be installed.
