Cost-share available for well sealing

Mower SWCD is partnering with Austin Utilities to provide cost-share assistance to landowners interested in sealing an unused or abandoned well. Cost-share is 50% of the sealing cost (up to $1,000 per well) and focused on high-priority areas of Mower County (see colored areas of map below) on a "first-come, first-served" basis.

Those interested should contact Mower SWCD's Tim Ruzek at 507-460-4577 or tim@mowerdistrict.org.
