Kentucky American Water offers grants for protection of source waters or the area's watershed

Kentucky American Water Co., which supplies water to Midway's city system, is accepting applications for American Water environmental grants.

The program offers funds for innovative, community-based environmental projects that improve, restore or protect watersheds, surface water and/or groundwater supplies through partnerships, Kentucky American said in a press release. Last year, the company awarded $9,200 for two projects, bringing to $174,000 the total of awards it has made under the program.

Applications must be postmarked by April 1. To qualify, proposed projects must:
• Address a need for protecting source waters or the watershed
