The city of Vienna is getting a $1.1 million state loan to pay for a new well, treatment plant and water tower.
A state news release says it's part of Gov. Nathan Deal's plan to spend $300 million to pay for reservoirs and other water supply projects in Georgia.
The state news release says Vienna will get a $1.1 million, 20-year loan to replace the city's oldest well and provide more water storage.
The city in Dooly County has suffered water problems due to the long-term drought in south Georgia.
The state says Vienna will pay zero percent interest during construction and will not be charged a closing fee. They'll pay 1 percent interest after construction is completed.
The Vienna well is one of eight projects statewide awarded Wednesday. They also include new reservoirs in Newton, Walton and Paulding counties.
The governor began the finance program amid an ongoing fight over water with Alabama and Florida.
