HUNTSVILLE — The Tennessee Department of Environment & Conservation announced Wednesday that Scott County is among 102 communities across the state awarded more than $232 million for drinking water, wastewater and stormwater infrastructure improvements.

Scott County is receiving $2,217,776 from the American Rescue Plan to address priority needs for the Huntsville Utility District and expand the system to provide safe, potable water to outer-lying rural areas. The drinking water projects will include planning, design and construction of a water line replacement and water line extensions on Hurricane Road in Huntsville and Coal Hill Road in Robbins.

HUD provides water to much of Scott County outside the Town of Oneida, and is supplied by the Flat Creek Reservoir. Scott County Government is pleased to partner with the utility district for the grant to extend water to more Scott Countians in rural areas.

Additionally, the Town of Huntsville has received $1,268,141 to make improvements to its sewer pump station and wastewater treatment plant.
