Atoka to leverage record grant funding for wastewater improvements


The town of Atoka is levering the largest grant award in town history to finance the revitalization and enhancement of Atoka’s wastewater infrastructure. Atoka was granted $8,192,350 through the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation allocation from the American Rescue Plan Act. The funds will finance two major projects: the replacement and upgrade of the Main Street Pump Station and the replacement of the Kearns Lift Station Wastewater Force Main. The two projects will both ensure efficient and reliable wastewater services for residents and businesses through more sustainable infrastructure and position Atoka for growth.
