LONDON, Ky. (April 13, 2017) — The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) approved a grant for $397,524 to London-Laurel County Industrial Development Authority in London to extend water, sewer, and transportation infrastructure into the Fariston Industrial Park.

Initially developed by the London-Laurel County Industrial Development Authority, the Fariston Industrial Park currently has two occupied buildings with inadequate water system infrastructure and no storm sewer access. The project includes over 1,200 linear feet of waterline and sewer line with a new 100 gallon-per-minute pump station. London and Laurel County have experienced a 10 percent growth in population since 2000 with many employees working in manufacturing

The ARC program and policy is to provide assistance for residential infrastructure project, water supply and wastewater treatment projects to assist in alleviating environmental public health concerns and ensure the acceptable quality of life for local residents.
