County of Newell Rural Water Project Funding Initiative

To provide support for the County of Newell Rural Water Project and the water users who committed to the project the Board of Directors has created the County of Newell Rural Water Project Funding Initiative. The purpose of the initiative is to contribute funds to the County of Newell to reimburse 1st and 2nd water users connecting to the County’s Rural Water Project. A one-time reimbursement of $2,000.00 per water user is available provided that:

  • The water user met the conditions of the County of Newell’s April 29, 2011 registration deadline and,
  • The water user hooks up to the Rural Water Line within 3 years of the line being installed.

Once applied for and approved by the EID, payment for the reimbursement will be made to the water user by the County of Newell on behalf of the EID.
