The City of Tallassee is excited to announce it has received funding for the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration’s (PHMSA) fiscal year (FY) 2023 Natural Gas Distribution Infrastructure Safety and Modernization (NGDISM) Grant in the amount of $5,469,300.

This grant will be used in the replacement of approximately 12.6 miles and 0.8 miles of 2.25-inch and 6-inch cast iron gas mains located on the East Tallassee side of the city.

The city was previously awarded $9,700,000 to address cast iron gas mains on the westside of the city. This project is underway at this time.

The combined total of $15,169,300 for these infrastructure projects is the highest amount received in the history of Tallassee.

“By receiving these grant funds from the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration,” Tallassee Mayor Sarah Hill stated, “we are able to quickly and efficiently remove these dangerous gas mains over the next few years. The city is very lucky to have received back-to-back funding to address both sides of our city’s gas mains.”

The City of Tallassee would like to thank engineering partner, CDG Engineering, for their assistance in this grant request.
