The village of New Waterford has received a $1.78 million interest-free loan from the Ohio EPA to improve the village’s drinking water treatment and distribution system.
The project consists of the following:
- Upgrading the village’s water treatment plant by replacing chemical feed equipment, pressure filters, a blower, high-service pumps and electrical and control systems
- Adding a mixing and data system to elevated storage tanks
- Replacing deteriorated distribution pipes along two roads
Created in 1998, the Water Supply Revolving Loan Account (WSRLA) provides below-market interest rate loans for compliance-related improvements for community water systems and nonprofit, non-community public water systems.
