Brinson awarded $250,000 for water tank

The Town of Brinson was awarded $250,000 in loans and subsidies to help improve its residents’ water supply.

In a news release Tuesday from the Georgia Environmental Facilities Authority (GEFA), Executive Director Chris Clark announced the approval of a Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) loan of $125,000 and a Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) subsidy of $125,000 for the Town of Brinson.

The loan and subsidy will finance the drilling and development of a new ground water source that will serve the town’s 225 residents.

The Town of Brinson will pay zero percent interest on the 20-year loan. The total project cost is $250,000 with GEFA providing the entire amount, according to the release.

“The Drinking Water State Revolving Fund assists local governments with their efforts to provide clean drinking water,” said Clark. “In addition to the public’s health and safety, these projects are critical to a community’s ability to prosper economically.”
