Cheatham County has been awarded a $3.5 million-dollar grant to upgrade its drinking water and wastewater systems.


The project will increase water systems’ capacity, improve efficiency, and enhance water quality across the county’s entire service system.


The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) recently announced 20 grants totaling $63,888,650 from the state’s American Rescue Plan (ARP) fund, part of which TDEC is administering in the form of drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater infrastructure grants. 


“I’m very pleased TDEC is making this significant investment to enhance the drinking water and wastewater systems in Cheatham County," said Senator Kerry Roberts. "Access to clean and safe drinking water is a fundamental necessity for the health and vitality of our residents. I thank the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation for this important investment that will ensure a sustainable water supply for our community.”

Since August 2022, TDEC has awarded and announced $996 million in executed grant funds representing every county and 248 cities through ARP programming, and the grants mark the conclusion of the award phase of the non-competitive grant program.


“We commend the communities who have gone through the application process and acquired these grants,” Gov. Bill Lee said. “The grants are funding important water infrastructure across our state, and we look forward to the improvements this process will bring.”
