The intent of an asset management program (AMP) is to provide public water systems (PWSs) with a tool to better manage, operate, and maintain their water system so that the PWS can cost-effectively and consistently meet safe drinking water requirements. The minimum requirements of an asset management program are established in Ohio Revised Code (ORC) Section 6109.24 and Ohio Administrative Code (OAC) Chapter 3745-87.
If your water system is in the process of applying for a loan through Ohio EPA, submit the following financial documents for review to the Project Coordinator in DEFA-CO. Please contact your Drinking Water Inspector for the specific contact information of the DEFA Project Coordinator.
If your community public water system (PWS) is required by Ohio EPA to submit financial information for review, and your PWS is not applying for a loan, submit the following documents to DDAGW-CO:

Metrics are performance measures that allow public water systems (PWSs) to gauge the status of their water system. Metrics must be tracked and reported to Ohio EPA on an annual basis. PWSs are encouraged to track the metrics using their Asset Management Program Template and to set goals for their metrics in order to improve operations and reduce costs over time.
OAC Rule 3745-87-05 outlines the specific metrics required for community and noncommunity public water systems.
Some of the metrics are determined based on a calculation. For those metrics, the PWS will be required to report the data, and Ohio EPA will complete the calculation. Please reference the metrics fact sheets above for specific details on metrics data that must be tracked and reported.
For more information regarding metrics, please contact: Susan Schell in Ohio EPA’s Central Office at email@example.com or (614) 644-2752.
Overview of Technical Assistance and Services
Ohio EPA's spill hotline should be used to report release of any material that impacts public health or the environment, including chemicals and petroleum products.
For non-emergency calls, including complaints, questions or concerns about environmental issues, please use the toll-free numbers listed for the nearest district office or contact the public involvement coordinator for your region. The regulated community should use the main division number for routine business.
