Town of Eau Galle residents may be potential applicants for the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Well Compensation and Well Abandonment Grant Programs. These programs are providing funding to well and water system owners to replace, reconstruct, treat or abandon their wells or water systems.
The ARPA well compensation grant program provides funding to eligible landowners, renters or WI business owners to replace, reconstruct or treat contaminated private water supplies that serve a residence or non-community public water system wells. To be eligible, family or business income may not exceed $100,000 for the prior calendar year.
The well abandonment grant program provides funding assistance to properly fill and seal abandoned or unused private or non-community public water system wells. Work completed before submitting an application and receiving DNR approval will not be reimbursed.
