Walthill will receive a $908,000 loan to replace its sewer treatment plant.

Ashton will receive a $700,000 loan to help built a new lift station and wastewater treatment lagoons.

Benkelman will receive a $139,000 loan and an $11,000 grant to

Wynot will receive a $105,000 loan to replace the lining on two wells and build a well house for one well.
