Delphos receives $1.7 million for water infrastructure

DELFOS. State loan programs provide clean water to the entire state, including Delphos.

The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency on Friday provided Ohio cities with funding to improve wastewater and drinking water infrastructure. Funding is provided through the organization in the form of a loan with a low interest rate and principal forgiveness.

According to the press release, Delphos will receive three loans totaling $1.78 million. The goal is to use $1.6 million to replace South Main Street service lines.

The second loan, totaling $115,000, will be used to replace plumbing and utilities on Skinner Street. The final loan will be used to replace the Jefferson High School Pump Station and restore the Bredick Lift Station.

Across Ohio, counties received a total of $220 million. In Northwest Ohio, cities received $14.6 million.

The loan program will help counties save millions on future projects.

Gov. Mike DeWine said in a press release that he plans to continue prioritizing water quality in the region.

“Drinking water and wastewater infrastructure are important components of Ohio’s economy and the quality of life for Ohio’s residents,” DeWine said in a press release. “My administration has made clean water a statewide priority and will continue to do so in the future.”
