RCAP Solutions received a Synergy Initiative Pilot Grant of $425,000 in 2021 for the North Central Massachusetts Private Well Program, following a Planning Grant of $204,150.  In the pilot year, RCAP will provide outreach and education efforts aimed at addressing potential contaminants in private wells in six towns within the target North Central area comprised of the 26 towns within the Nashoba Associated Boards of Health and Montachusett Public Health Network catchment areas.  This will include outreach to private well owners, local Boards of Health, and other interested parties to educate them about potential contaminants in private well water.  RCAP will also assist local Boards of Health in establishing regulations for current contaminant protection and providing public education to private well owners and local communities and advocate for minimum statewide regulations to ensure that drinking water from private wells is safe and clean.
