FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- A southern Kentucky community is receiving $1.5 million to help expand its water treatment plant.

The project in Monticello will increase the plant's capacity and allow for residential and industrial growth in the area.

Gov. Steve Beshear's office says the plant is outdated and can no longer meet its required capacity. It was built more than 25 years ago and was last upgraded in 2000.

The governor's office says the plant provides treated water for all of Wayne County and part of Pulaski County.

The expansion will increase the plant's current capacity of three million gallons per day to six million gallons per day.

The funding includes a $1 million Community Development Block Grant to the Wayne County Fiscal Court and a $500,000 Appalachian Regional Commission grant to Monticello.
