We will be applying for a Safe Drinking Water Loan (SDWL) which should be approved by the end of 2023 for the 2024 fiscal year. If approved, this SDWL will allow us to pay for 50% of the replacement cost of the private service lateral and offer a low-interest loan for our customers on the remaining balance.
