Mobile County Accepts Grant For Bayou La Batre Water
BAYOU LA BATRE, Ala. — The Mobile County Commission voted this week to accept a $5.3-million grant for the Bayou La Batre Water Distribution System Upgrades Project “to replace undersized water mains with larger lines to provide adequate water pressure and fire protection for many areas within [the] Bayou La Batre Utilities Board service area,” the commission said. The project is a multiyear Resources and Ecosystems Sustainability, Tourist Opportunities, and Revived Economies of the Gulf Coast States (RESTORE) Act endeavor funded through the U.S. Department of Treasury in cooperation with the State of Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. Design and engineering for the project was accomplished with an earlier grant; this one funds construction.
