COLUMBUS — Several Northwest Ohio communities are receiving financing from the Ohio EPA for wastewater, drinking water and infrastructure improvements.

In Allen County, Delphos is receiving two loans. A $447,566 loan is to replace a water main on Fifth Street. The existing water main will be replaced with a new water main and will replace lead service lines. The loan includes $350,000 in principal forgiveness.

The other loan is for $91,620 to design a project to replace an existing standpipe with a new 500,000-gallon elevated water storage tank and other distribution system improvements.

In Putnam County, Dupont is receiving a $4 million loan with 100% principal forgiveness to build a sewer system to collect and treat wastewater from the villages of Dupont and Cloverdale. Principal forgiveness means all or a portion of the loan does not have to be repaid.

The project includes constructing a collection system in Dupont and a wastewater treatment plant to be located between the villages.

Also in Putnam County, Continental is receiving $802,000 to construct a new 150,000-gallon elevated water tower.
