Georgia Environmental Facilities Authority (GEFA) Executive Director Chris Clark announced Wednesday the approval of a Georgia Fund grant of $100,000 for Effingham County. The grant, approved by the GEFA board of directors, will help finance the installation of a 500,000-gallon water reuse storage tank.
“Infrastructure improvements increase quality of life for Georgia citizens, and they help cities and counties create jobs and promote economic development," said Gov. Sonny Perdue. "I'm pleased this investment is being made in water reuse infrastructure.”
“The Georgia Fund loan program is a tangible commitment by Perdue and the General Assembly to assist local governments across the state with their efforts to provide clean water and sewer improvements,” said Clark.
“In addition to the public’s health and safety, these projects are critical to communities across Georgia and to their ability to prosper economically.”
Clark expressed appreciation to Perdue, state Sen. Jack Hill, and state Reps. Jon Burns and Buddy Carter for their support.
