The city of Statham was approved for a Georgia Fund sewer grant of $100,000 this week to help finance a sewer extension to residents who are currently on septic tanks. Gov. Sonny Perdue’s office said Tuesday that 153 homes in the area will be able to discontinue the use of septic tanks.

The total project cost is $3,036,273, with the Georgia Environmental Facilities Authority (GEFA) providing $2,790,000 in a previously-approved Georgia Fund loan and the city providing $146,273 in local funds.
