PAWSD Awarded $9.3 Million in Stimulus Funds

The Pagosa Area Water and Sanitation District (PAWSD) received word in late May that they will receive more than $9.3 million to complete much-needed improvements to their aging wastewater system. In all, PAWSD will receive $9,322,353 of stimulus funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). The amount represents 30 percent of the $31 million statewide total available for sewer-related projects from the Clean Water State Revolving Fund.
