MWA funding infrastructure for Tindall Heights project

Feb 3, 2017 by Chris Wood, Ph.D.


The Macon Water Authority will be investing approximately $1.25 million to construct water and sewer infrastructure for the Tindall Heights Community.

During its November Board Meeting, the MWA granted the request from the Macon Housing Authority (MHA) to fund the water and sewer infrastructure for the Tindall Heights redevelopment.

The estimated cost for construction of the water and sewer infrastructure for all four phases of redevelopment at Tindall Heights is approximately $1.25 million. However, with approximately $300,000 in revenue expected from tap fees for the new residences, that figure is reduced to an estimated $947,479.

The MWA plans to provide the funding over the course of three years, to coincide with the timetable of the development. With Phase 1 of construction at Tindall Heights underway, funding of approximately $550,000 for the first two phases of water and sewer infrastructure will come from the MWA’s current 2016-17 fiscal year (FY).

Funding for the water and sewer to accommodate Tindall Heights’ Phase III of construction will total approximately $538,000, which will be appropriated by the Authority during its FY 2017-18 budget, which begins Oct. 1 of next year. Finally, the remaining amount of nearly $160,000 for the Phase IV water and sewer will be provided during the MWA’s 2018-19 fiscal year.

Critical to the agreement between the MWA and MHA is the stipulation that the Housing Authority receive approval for low income tax credits for the respective phases of the Tindall Heights development which any MWA infrastructure would serve.
