Glades Reservoir: County holds off on seeking loans as project delays mount
Flat Creek flows through bottom land along Galde Farm Road where the proposed Glades Reservoir is to be located.
The Georgia Environmental Finance Authority awarded $26 million in loans this week for three reservoir projects, but the proposed Glades Reservoir in Hall County was not one of them. While county officials have requested about $14.5 million in direct investment from the state — which does not require any payback — through the Governor’s Water Supply Program, they did not apply for a loan. Officials said continued delays in the completion of an environmental impact statement and review for Glades made a loan unnecessary.
