Applications for grant programs to help private well owners in Wisconsin will be accepted until December 6 of next year or when money runs out.
Governor Tony Evers says the Well Compensation and Well Abandonment Grant Programs are providing ten-million dollars in assistance to help well owners address contamination. Money can go toward replacement, reconstruction, treatment, or abandoning impacted wells. Due to expanded criteria announced last year, many people who previously didn’t quality for grants are now eligible. So far, the DNR has given our more than 46-percent of the ten-million dollars in funding to 370 grantees.
