In 2014 we received a grant from the Coca-Cola Foundation and Coca-Cola Bottling Company United, which support projects that foster access to clean water, water conservation, and water reuse. Additional funding was provided by the Riverview Foundation, a Private Independent Foundation located in Chattanooga, TN.

The Sewanee Utility District (SUD), as well as the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, provide support for the project through technical assistance and oversight. SUD has collaborated with the University of the South for almost 30 years.
