Lowndes Co. signs agreement to take over Moody AFB waste treatment

| October 4, 2016


LOWNDES Co. – Local officials gathered to announce a new partnership between Moody air force base and Lowndes County on October 3rd.

Moody is one of 53 bases across the nation to take part in what’s called a P-4 initiative.

The initiative looks at ways to cut costs for the Department of Defense while helping local communities. In Lowndes County, county officials signed a contract to take over the base’s water treatment plant. The new contract will save Moody Air Force Base roughly $200,000 a year.

The P-4 initiative in Lowndes County has been in the works for nearly 3 and a half years.

The contract for the water treatment plant will last 5 years, but officials hope the partnership continues much longer than that.
