RCAP Solutions received a Synergy Initiative Planning Grant of $204,150 to address the contamination of private wells in Central Massachusetts. There are currently no statewide regulations of private wells, so many private well owners are unaware of water quality or contamination issues in their water. RCAP will conduct well assessments, map drinking water issues, educate and assist homeowners with remediation, educate local Boards of Health in the establishment of private well regulations and advocate for statewide regulations.  A revolving loan fund may be explored to assist private well owners with needed repairs which can be costly.
