Equity funds to extend a water line from the City of Hogansville to provide a stable & sufficient water supply to companies locating inside Meriwether Park. Meriwether Park, located off I-85 on GA Hwy 54, is a public-private partnership with Greenbow, LLC to be developed as a progressive, mixed use planned community for industrial and commercial development. Greenbow is developing a landfill at Meriwether Park to handle solid waste for the county as well as provide a recycling center. The County committed $13 million for public road improvements and infrastructure. The County drilled for water at the park site in June 2008 and found that the wells did not provide sufficient water.

Local investment includes $13 million, and an application as been made for $500,000 from EIP.
