PENDLETON - The Pendleton City Council on Tuesday night authorized entering into a $4 million loan agreement with the state Department of Environmental Quality. The money will help finance the city's planned wastewater treatment plant upgrade set to begin construction early next year.

The loan falls under the Clean Water State Revolving Fund. Half of it qualifies for federal stimulus money, given at zero percent interest.
