Water and Sewer District in Ohio Gets Funding to Inspect Water Lines

To ensure drinking water service reliability and quality, the Northwestern Water and Sewer District in Wood County, Ohio plans to evaluate several miles of pipe with help from an Ohio EPA loan.

The project in the Toledo service area involves inspecting approximately 12 miles of 16-inch to 30-inch water mains to determine the condition of the pipes and planning for any necessary rehabilitation.

Created in 1998, the Water Supply Revolving Loan Account provides below-market interest rate loans for compliance-related improvements for community water systems and nonprofit, non-community public water systems. The project is being funded through a $217,700 WSRLA loan to the district.

Projects eligible for WSRLA funding include planning, design and construction loans for new, replaced, rehabilitated, upgraded or expanded water treatment plants and their components. In addition, the WSRLA can provide technical assistance to public drinking water systems to improve and enhance the technical, managerial and financial capacity of these systems.
