Owens, who is also the director of the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ), presented the city of Williams with a check for $7.5 million during the meeting that will be used for wastewater treatment within the city. The money, a low-interest loan through WIFA, will be used for the design and construction of the city's new secondary wastewater treatment plant.
