The New Orleans Advocate reports ( the parish council unanimously passed a resolution authorizing Parish President Larry Cochran to sign the loan, which is to come from the DEQ’s low-interest Clean Water State Revolving Fund.

Offered at a .98 percent annual rate, Public Works Director Clayton Faucheux (FOH’ shay) said the loan will be used to improve pump stations, gravity sewers and a lagoon, along with other miscellaneous sanitary sewer work.

The DEQ administers the revolving fund program to finance eligible projects and bring local systems into compliance with the federal Clean Water Act.
