Governor Steve Beshear and other state officials have announced a comprehensive upgrade to the wastewater treatment plants in the cities of Stanton and Clay City in Powell County.

The project will combine the two existing Stanton and Clay City plants into one expanded plant in Stanton. 

The Kentucky Department for Local Government (DLG) has committed nearly $3.75 million in combined funding sources to help support this new project. Overall, more than $13 million in combined state and federal funding sources will be utilized to complete the wastewater treatment plants’ expansion and upgrades.  

Both the cities of Stanton and Clay City have existing treatment plants that are operating under enforcement actions from the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet for wastewater flows that exceed the rated treatment capacity of both wastewater treatment plants.
