Stephens Co. Receiving Sewer Expansion Grant from EDA

June 19, 2014

Stephens County receives some good economic news.

Wednesday afternoon, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker announced that the Commerce Department’s Economic Development Administration will give $1.42 million to Toccoa and Stephens County for water and sewer system improvements along the Toccoa By-pass.

Specifically, the grant is funding expansion of the city’s sewer system from the intersection of the By-pass and Big A Road to the By-pass and Highway 106.

Toccoa and Stephens County have designed a sewer expansion project that would build out sewer on Big A Road between Rose Lane and the Toccoa By-pass, as well as the By-pass between Big A Road and Highway 106.

The project also includes water system improvements necessary to match the sewer system expansion and improvements.

Commerce Secretary Pritzker said that this investment will help make critical infrastructure upgrades that will help local manufacturers grow and attract new business to Stephens County.

In awarding the grant, the EDA stated improving the infrastructure along the By-pass will enable several manufacturing businesses to retain and expand existing operations.
