Local Communities Awarded for Water Management

Posted on Wednesday, March 22, 2017 at 12:17 pm

Grundy County, the Town of Monteagle, the Town of Tracy City, and Big Creek Utility District were recently awarded the 2017 Rebuild Tennessee Award by the Southeast Tennessee Development. The award is the result of local water providers interconnecting the individual water systems so water supply could be managed in the event of a major drought. The project was identified in a 2004 water study report funded by the Southeast Industrial Development Association to determine a cost-effective strategy to provide for the water needs in the region. The John S. Wilder Rebuild Tennessee Awards are chosen each year by the state’s nine development districts to recognize a local community’s commitment to rebuilding our rural infrastructure and communities.
