Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) — Five projects across the state have been awarded grants totaling $127,500 to fund green infrastructure and low-impact development projects.

Awards from Tennessee's Green Development Grant Program include $25,000 to install rain gardens for three Memphis schools.

A $28,000 award will help Knoxville separate its stormwater runoff from its sewage, remove pollution from the runoff and help it infiltrate the ground.

Chattanooga's $28,000 grant funds its Low-Impact Development Excellence Award program to recognize projects using innovative green technologies.

Athens will use its $28,000 grant to test experimental cleaning technologies on local roads, trails and parking lots.

The Southeast Tennessee Development District will receive $18,000 to help 15 municipalities and five counties develop land use regulations to improve stormwater runoff quality.

The grants require a 20 percent local match.
