The Ohio EPA has awarded more than $19 million in funding for sewer and water construction projects across the state.
The projects receiving funding include:
- $721,026 to the city of Wellstone to update water lines and a water treatment plant and generator. The project includes the rehabilitation of the motor control center and wiring at the South water treatment plant, installation of an emergency generator at the well-field, and upgrading and replacing a 6-inch water main on Minnesota Avenue with an 8-inch line between Broadway Avenue and Golden Rocket Drive. An additional 700 feet of new 8-inch water main will also be installed across Golden Rocket Drive, beginning at the intersection of Minnesota Avenue.
- $27,500 to the village of Sarahsville to plan for a new wastewater collection and treatment system. The project includes designing a centralized system to serve Sarahsville and the neighboring Shenandoah Schools campus.
- $960,000 to Scioto Water Inc. loan to go toward funding improvements to the Rose Hill drinking water distribution system. The project includes the construction of a replacement standpipe storage tank on the existing tank site in South Webster, an above-ground booster station and 10,000 linear feet of replacement water main.
- $14,793,523 to the city of Avon Lake for the Fairfield-Brookfield combined sewer separation project.
- $1,848,815 loan to the city of Parma to extend sanitary sewers into an area currently served by aging and ineffective on-site wastewater treatment systems. The project includes the installation of an 8-inch gravity sewer line with manholes and lateral connections along Ridge Road. The city will then connect nearby properties to its sanitary sewer collection and treatment system.
- $1,000,000 to the village of Cadiz to improve water quality in the Ohio River watershed. The project includes the lining and repair of designated high priority areas of the North Trunk collection system to minimize rain and snow melt entry into the system. The project will prevent regular overflows of sewage into local streams and help the wastewater treatment plant meet current and future permit limits.
