the north face point five interest loans for water treatment projects
Two cities and a town in North Georgia received low interest loans from the state and the EPA for water treatment projects.
According to a news release from State Sen. Jeff Mullis, R Chickamauga, today,
the loans are for:
$1.15 million to Chickamauga to replace water mains and old meters with an automatic meter reading system. The new system is supposed to reduce water loss. The money comes from the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund loan.
$3 million to Fort Oglethorpe to rehabilitate sewer lines and replace two pump stations. This money comes from the Conservation Water State Revolving Fund.
$4.3 million to Trion to install new sludge pumps, belt press units and thickeners at the local water pollution control plant. This money also comes from the Conservation Water State Revolving Fund.
“These three cities will truly benefit from these funds and will be able to make enhancements that will continue improving the quality of life for all residents,” Mullis said in a statement. “I am excited to see these projects begin in the future.”
