Through Anderson County, Pelzer Heritage
By David Meade
The Pelzer Heritage Commission and Anderson County are in the process of obtaining grant funding for another cleanup project at the Pelzer Mill properties. If approved, the project will be funded with a loan from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and administered by the Catawba Council of Governments.
The Pelzer project will receive a $250,000 loan, with a thirty per cent forgiveness feature, meaning that only $175,000 will have to be repaid. That repayment will come from the County general fund, with no cost to the Town of Pelzer or the Pelzer Heritage Commission, according to County Planning Director Michael Forman.
