Hundreds of Alabama systems apply for water, sewer grants

Apr 5, 2022

More than 400 Alabama water and sewer systems have applied for grants funded by pandemic relief money, according to the Alabama Department of Environmental Management.

Alabama lawmakers this winter voted to use $225 million out of the state's share of American Rescue Plan funding to fund high-need water and sewer projects.

“This is an historic opportunity to address longstanding water and sewer needs to benefit hundreds of thousands, and potentially millions, of Alabamians,” ADEM Director Lance LeFleur said in a statement.
