Bentley announces funding to improve water services in Notasulga | News
A $200,000 grant recenlty announced by Gov. Robert Bentley will improve public water services in Notasulga and enhance the town’s ability to attract new businesses.
The town will use the funding from the Appalachian Regional Commission to replace 1,720 feet of deteriorating water line along Alabama Highway 81 and Tuskegee Street with larger capacity lines. In addition, three inoperable fire hydrants will be replaced. The corroding iron pipes affect water purity and frequently break resulting in costly repairs.
The project will improve water pressure for residential and business customers, enhance fire safety and be a positive factor for encouraging new businesses or light industry to locate in the area.
Bentley notified Mayor Tommy Miller that the grant had been approved.
The ARC program is administered by the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs. ADECA administers a wide range of programs that support law enforcement, economic development, workforce development, recreation, energy conservation and water resource management.
Congress established the ARC in 1965 as a supplemental grant program to raise the standard of living, improve the quality of life and promote economic development in portions of the 13 Appalachian mountain states. Thirty-seven Alabama counties, including Macon County, are part of the ARC area.
