PRWD eyes Rural Development loan/grant

March 22, 2013

After a public hearing this week, Pioneer Rural Water District of Oconee-Anderson is moving forward with a combination grant-loan application to one of the country’s largest federal agencies. Within the utilities programs in the Rural Development part of the U-S Department of Agriculture, the rural two-county water retailer pins its hopes for a loan of $3 million and a grant of $12 million. Those are the figures that Jerry Barlow, chairman of the Pioneer Board of Directors, gave 96.3/WGOG NEWS today, in interview following a public hearing this week. Only one person spoke at the hearing. With the loan and grant money, Pioneer will pursue the construction of a two and a half million gallon treatment plant in the county’s Golden Corner Commerce Park.
