Bartow County will receve $2.5 million through the Georgia Environmental Facilities Authority (GEFA) to finance the installation and the relocation of water lines.“The Georgia Fund loan program is a tangible commitment by Governor Perdue and the General Assembly to assist local governments across the state with their efforts to provide clean water and sewer improvements,” said Chris Clark, executive director of GEFA.

Clark expressed appreciation to Gov. Sonny Perdue, State Senators Bill Heath and Preston Smith and State Representatives Tom Graves, Barry Loudermilk and Paul Battles for their support.

The Georgia Fund is a state funded program administered by GEFA for water, wastewater and solid waste infrastructure projects. The program has maximum flexibility and accessibility, and offers fast loan and grant approvals. The Georgia Fund provides loans and grants to local governments for projects such as water and sewer lines, treatment plants, pumping stations, wells, water storage tanks and water meters. Low interest loans from this program are available up to $10 million.
