Ohio is facing aging environmental infrastructure, rising construction costs, increased focus on asset management, strained local budgets for operations and maintenance, and increasing water and wastewater user charges for residential customers.
Lead is a common, natural, toxic, and often useful metal that was used for years in products around the home and in the construction industry.
Whenever a community applies to obtain a design or construction loan from DEFA, specific information must be provided so the technical group in the Office of Financial Assistance (OFA) can review the project.
As part of DEFA’s ongoing efforts to make the most of the limited principal forgiveness funding available every year through our SRF programs, additional focus will be placed on projects that are ready to proceed.
The Program Year (PY) 2020 Drinking Water Assistance Fund (DWAF) Program Management Plan (PMP) became effective on July 1, 2019.
This year, Ohio EPA received a record number of nominations for the Water Supply Revolving Loan Account (WSRLA) – more than 180 projects and more than $400 million for upcoming program year (PY) 2020. This reflects the growing popularity of the WSRLA and the continued, widespread need for drinking water infrastructure improvements. During calendar year 2018, the WSRLA loaned out an all-time-high of more than $233 million in funds for drinking water improvement projects.
