ADECA to award $600K sewer grant to county

— A $600,000 grant slated to offset a $1.1 million project to provide sanitary sewer connections to the new Carpenter Technology Corporation steel manufacturing plant in southern Limestone County will become official on Tuesday.

On behalf of the Limestone County Water and Sewer Authority, the county’s grant coordinator, Sonya Anthony, applied for a Community Development Block Grant for infrastructure improvements. The county held a public hearing Feb. 19 to discuss the grant application.

The commission previously approved the grant application but the CDBG program required a public hearing before the grant would be approved.
