State Senator Page Walley announced last week that $1.8 million in grant funding has been awarded by the Tennessee Department of Environment & Conservation (TDEC) to improve water infrastructure in Wayne County.

“These projects will address critical needs as well as make improvements that will benefit countless residents and businesses,” said Walley. “I appreciate TDEC’s partnership as well as the efforts of everyone involved in these important projects.”

The $1,874,991.00 grant has been allocated to the City of Clifton. The City of Clifton will use the ARP funds to construct a 1.5 MGD water treatment plant, utilizing flash mix, flocculation, and sedimentation basins for pre-treatment. This project will also include the construction of a new raw water intake to address the hydraulic deficiencies and inaccessibility of the existing intake. The proposed raw water intake will require a new raw water line of approximately 2,500 linear feet to convey the raw water to the proposed water treatment plant site.

Tennessee received $3.7 billion from the ARP, and the state’s Financial Stimulus Accountability Group dedicated $1.35 billion of those funds to TDEC to support water projects in communities throughout the state. Of the $1.35 billion, approximately $1 billion was designated for non-competitive formula-based grants offered to counties and eligible cities. The remaining funds will go to state-initiated projects and competitive grants.
