Grant will help rehab Hartsville water system

HARTSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Gov. Bill Haslam has announced that Hartsville-Trousdale County is getting a $500,000 grant to help fix its water system.

Haslam announced the Community Block Grant in a news release Tuesday.

Hartsville-Trousdale County plans to use the money to rehabilitate existing water lines and will focus efforts to decrease the nearly 40 percent of water loss the system experiences. Once complete, the new system will be expected to work more efficiently and help residents avoid rate increases.

The funds were allocated under a procedure authorized by the Tennessee General Assembly.

Local funding in the amount of $62,000 also will contribute to the project.
