City awarded $4,000 grant for storm water demo system

Part of Indiana American Water’s Environmental Grant Program

TERRE HAUTE — Indiana American Water has awarded a $4,000 grant to the City of Terre Haute as part of the company’s 2013 Environmental Grant Program, the company said in a news release.

The grant will be used to develop and install a storm water demonstration project along the Terre Haute Trails Greenway & System.

“We applaud the City of Terre Haute and Mayor Bennett for their efforts to reduce storm water runoff and to educate the public on ways [it] can help enhance our waterways,” said Indiana American Water President Alan DeBoy.

The environmental grant will help fund developing and installing a storm water demonstration project at Brown Avenue and Locust Street along a recently constructed 1.5 mile section of the National Road Heritage Trail.

The project, which includes nine partners, will add 40 trees to the area and intercept more than 5,200 gallons of storm water and capture more than 1,200 pounds of carbon dioxide during the first year after planting. The project also will include an educational component with on-site kiosks and participation by area elementary school students.

Established in 2005, the company’s Environmental Grant Program offers funds for innovative, community-based environmental projects that improve, restore or protect the watersheds, surface water and/or groundwater supplies in the communities it serves. All grant recipients will submit a report at the end of the year to American Water regarding how their grants were used to achieve their specific environmental goals.
