Earth Day is April 22nd, it's day set aside to focus on making our environment cleaner.

And that's just what happened in the community of Finley.

Finley will soon begin the work of upgrading it sanitary system and the USDA Rural Development is helping get the job done.

On Wednesday, as part of an Earth Day celebration, Finley held a ceremony to thank USDA officials for $1.7 million dollars in grant and loans. Money will be used to make needed improvements to the sewer system. The current system was built in 1930 and the lagoon system in 1968.

USDA will provide $942,000 dollar in loans, and $758,000 dollars in grant money to improve the sewer system.
