ATLANTA (AP) - The state will help finance several water and sewer infrastructure projects totaling $11.5 million.

Governor Sonny Perdue announced the funding for projects in Blue Ridge, Cornelia, Franklin Springs, Lumpkin, Rincon and Newton County.

Perdue says investing in the projects will benefit the economy and the environment, improving water system efficiency and ensuring clean and safe water.

The funds are being administered by the Georgia Environmental Facilities Authority, provides financial assistance and administers programs that encourage stewardship of the environment and promote economic development statewide.
