Moulton Awarded ARC Grant for Sewer Improvements
The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) has awarded a grant to the City of Moulton to assist the municipality with a project that will provide improvements to its sewer system.
The ARC grant, which was prepared and submitted by the North Central Alabama Regional Council of Governments (NARCOG) Regional Planning Agency, awards Moulton $200,000 in funds for a $319,978 sewer project. The city will provide $119,978 in local match funds.
NARCOG and the City of Moulton applied for this ARC grant to help fund a proposed project that will provide improvements to the wastewater collection system near Gordon Drive and Alabama Highway 157, which includes replacing deteriorated and leaking collection pipes and increasing the conveyance capacity of the Moulton Industrial Park Lift Station, to reduce the frequency and likelihood of issues for the residential and commercial customers serviced in the project area.
The project will have a direct impact on seven businesses and 45 households in Moulton.
Since Fiscal Year 2019, NARCOG has helped secure $3,551,116 in grant funds for assistance with projects in Cullman, Lawrence and Morgan counties.
