Well Water Assistance Available to Tompkins Residents

Thursday, May 10, 2018

The Water Well Trust, based in North Carolina, is a non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring that people have access to safe drinking water. Tompkins County is included in the current project area of the Water Well Trust. Residents in need of a new well or rehabilitation of an existing well are encouraged to apply for low-interest loans through the Water Well Trust.

The Water Well Trust is currently accepting applications from Tompkins County until September 30, 2018. More information and the application can be found here: https://www.waterwelltrust.org/how-to-apply/. Priority is given to households where health risks are imminent, to those with minorities, elderly, children, or disabled persons, including disabled veterans. Additionally, the resident must own the home and property.
