Wells/Water Systems - Will VA allow a property to have a cistern (a holding tank for water) on it?

Will VA allow a property to have a cistern (a holding tank for water) on it?

A cistern is not considered a continuing supply of safe and potable water.  If there is no other source of safe water, a determination would have to be made on the specifics of the situation by the VA office of jurisdiction.  Contact information for Regional Loan Centers (RLC) is available online at: http://www.benefits.va.gov/HOMELOANS/contact_rlc_info.asp.
