DHH awards $405K to water system for new well in Jackson Parish

Posted: Updated:

A Jackson Parish water system has received a $405,000 low-interest loan from the state to help install a new drinking water well.

The News-Star reports the money will be used to build a third water well at the Caney Lake booster station site to help increase drinking water production for the area's growing population.

The Department of Health and Hospital's Office of Public Health awarded the money to Weston Water System Inc. through the state's Drinking Water Revolving Loan Fund Program.

The water system currently serves about 1,350 people.
