City of Alton, Missouri

Horner & Shifrin assisted in securing funding to upgrade the drinking water distribution system.


Horner & Shifrin provided engineering design services for the Alton, MO Drinking Water System Rehabilitation Project, which includes the replacement of the City’s entire distribution system.  Funds for the $3.6 million dollar project were secured through USDA-Rural Development and Community Development Block Grant (CDBG).  Horner & Shifrin was able to secure $2 million in grant funding and the remaining $1.6 million in low-interest loans.  The project was successfully completed in 2018.  The project included replacement of all distribution mains, valves, hydrants and meters.  It also included tank rehabilitation, coatings and safety improvements, two new well houses with controls, and deep rock well refurbishment.
