US Environmental Protection Agency announces $156m water infra loan for City of Memphis

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced a $156 million Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (WIFIA) loan to the City of Memphis, Tennessee, for upgrades to the T.E. Maxson Wastewater Treatment Facility.

Administrator Mary S. Walker signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Commissioner Charlie Hatcher, D.V.M. of the Tennessee Department of Agriculture (TDA) to establish collaborative efforts and foster relationships between agencies.

Mary S. Walker commented:

“This MOU with the Tennessee Department of Agriculture establishes a framework for our agencies to collaborate better, enhance training opportunities, focus on accomplishing mutual goals, and further common interests in protecting the environment.”

TDA Commissioner Charlie Hatcher, D.V.M. said the agreement would further enhance efforts to provide the right tools and resources producers need to ensure their productivity and viability for years to come.

The MOU between EPA and the Tennessee Department of Agriculture includes education and outreach; communication/coordination; and recognition of environmental stewardship activities.

Farming dominates the Tennessee’s landscape, with approximately 77,300 farms covering 10.8 million acres, or 41% of the state’s 26.4 million land acres.
