Tennessee American Water Holds Ribbon Cutting with Prologue
Chattanooga, Tenn. (WDEF) – Tennessee American Water held a ribbon cutting today at Prologue, the Marion County-based company which manufactures fire logs from bio-mass materials, to mark the installation of a new water pipe along Valley View Highway.
The new water main delivers the necessary pressure for fire protection required at Prologue and allows the manufacturer to become fully functional.
Tennessee American Water installed over 5000 feet of pipe along the road (see below for aerial view of project). The cost of about half of the project is paid through the Economic Development Investment rider, a surcharge which allows the utility to recover costs of infrastructure associated with job-creating projects.
As an option to private wells, the new main gives residents along Sequatchie Valley Highway the ability to connect to the water treated and distributed by Tennessee American Water.
“Tennessee American Water recognizes the importance of water and the economy,” said Sequatchie Valley Supervisor Michael Griffith. “The Economic Development Investment rider is a good tool to help businesses get the infrastructure they need with minimal impact to customers while also supporting job creation.”
