EPA announces grants for Fall River, others

Posted 5/12/14

BOSTON – Fall River is among 14 communities nationwide sharing $860,000 intended to help expand green infrastructure to reduce water pollution and boost resilience to the impacts of climate change, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said last week.

According to a statement, the funding is in support of President Barack Obama’s Climate Action Plan, which directs federal agencies to identify climate-resilient investments such as agency grants and technical assistance for communities across the country.

In Fall River, the funding will help with an evaluation and concept design of tree filters to address Combined Sewer Overflows, stormwater, air quality, Urban Heat Island, and adaptation to climate change. The city will receive $56,000 in technical assistance from EPA to implement a new energy-efficiency tree-planting initiative.

Bath, Maine was the only other New England community selected to receive assistance under this program. •
