The Golden Triangle Resource Conservation and Development (RC&D) Council announces the spring sign-up for their Household Water Well Systems Loan Program. Loan applications along with required documentation (copy of deed, financial information, and bids for well work) will be accepted from April 1, 2011 to 4:00 p.m. Tuesday, May 31, 2011.
The Household Water Well Loan Program provides low-interest loans to low-income homeowners needing to repair or replace an existing well system. The program is available in Baker, Clay, Calhoun, Decatur, Dougherty, Early, Grady, Lee, Miller, Mitchell, Seminole, Terrell, Randolph and Worth Counties. The program cannot be used as a substitute for an existing community water system and cannot pay for plumbing or septic tank repair.
Participation in the program has increased and limited funding is available. The Golden Triangle RC&D Council would like to assist as many Southwest Georgia homeowners as possible. Since the program began in 2009, the Council has discovered how great the need is for access a clean, reliable source of drinking water.
For more information on the Household Water Well Systems Loan Program or to request an application, please contact the Golden Triangle RC&D at (229) 723-3841 or visit our website at www.enhancinggeorgia.org. Assistance in completing the application is available upon request.

The RC&D Council is a 501 (c) 3, non-profit organization that actively works on projects that benefit the area’s rural economy and natural resources.
