Water Surveys

The City of Beloit will be sending out surveys to the residents of Beloit and Rural Water District #1.  They are asking all residents who benefit from the city’s water services to complete and return the survey.  Results from this survey will be used to apply for a Community Development Block Grant for water quality improvements being offered by the Kansas Dept. of Commerce.   The completion and return of this survey is very important, the results may qualify our community for more block grants in the future.
