Lunar Eclipse to be on LIVE Webcast

Being there is a good chance for cloudiness this evening here in Northwest Ohio for the Total Lunar Eclipse of the Super Harvest Moon, we looked for a link for a LIVE WEBCAST of the event, hopefully in an area where there are not clouds or the camera is above the clouds. Thanks to the sponsor of the lunar eclipse, Coca-Cola, we can all watch the live event in the sky, on our “Smartphone”. What a world!!!

Ohio EPA Financing Waterline Project to Improve Water Service to Hoytville

The Northwestern Water and Sewer District will replace a water line serving the Village of Hoytville with assistance from a low-interest loan from Ohio EPA. The project ensures delivery of a safe, plentiful water supply to Hoytville and surrounding areas.

The Northwestern Water and Sewer District will replace a water line serving the Village of Hoytville with assistance from a low-interest loan from Ohio EPA. The project ensures delivery of a safe, plentiful water supply to Hoytville and surrounding areas.

The project will replace a 6-inch diameter water line along Bays Road that is undersized compared to the lines feeding into it and those downstream. The undersized section causes a bottleneck in the system, making distribution of water to Hoytville and nearby areas unreliable. This project will install a new 8-inch diameter line to assure adequate capacity.

Created in 1998, the Water Supply Revolving Loan Account (WSRLA) provides below-market interest rate loans for compliance-related improvements for community water systems and non-profit, non-community public water systems. The reduced interest rate on this $312,968 loan will save the water district an estimated $65,000 compared to a conventional, market-rate loan.

Projects eligible for WSRLA funding include 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 in a variety of areas from the planning, design and construction of improvements to enhancing the technical, managerial and financial capacity of these systems.

Ohio EPA’s revolving loan funds are partially supported by federal grants and designed to last indefinitely through repayment of loans and investments in bonds. The WSRLA is managed jointly by Ohio EPA’s Division of Environmental and Financial Assistance and Division of Drinking and Ground Waters, with assistance from the Ohio Water Development Authority. Ohio EPA is responsible for program development and implementation, individual project coordination, and environmental and other technical reviews/approvals of projects seeking funds. The Ohio Water Development Authority provides financial management of the fund.

Sewer District Planning Upgrades for Bloomdale; Receiving Financing from Ohio EPA

The Northwestern Water and Sewer District will address manhole corrosion issues in Bloomdale’s sanitary sewer system, reducing infiltration and inflow of storm water that causes overflows. The sewer district is funding the project with a low-interest loan from Ohio EPA.

The Northwestern Water and Sewer District will address manhole corrosion issues in Bloomdale’s sanitary sewer system, reducing infiltration and inflow of storm water that causes overflows. The sewer district is funding the project with a low-interest loan from Ohio EPA.

Bloomdale is served by a wastewater collection system that is prone to the buildup of hydrogen sulfide, which corrodes manholes. The manholes will be lined and new seals installed to eliminate the infiltration and inflow, reducing the overflows which can degrade water quality.

Created in 1989, the Water Pollution Control Loan Fund (WPCLF) provides below-market interest rate loans for communities to improve their wastewater treatment systems. Northwestern Water and Sewer District is receiving a reduced interest rate on this $100,538 loan, saving the district an estimated $21,000 when compared to a conventional, market-rate loan.

Besides improvements to publicly owned treatment works, WPCLF loans have been provided for agricultural best management practices, home sewage system improvements, landfill closures and water quality-based storm water projects. The WPCLF provides technical assistance to public wastewater systems in a variety of areas from the planning, design and construction of improvements to enhancing the technical, managerial and financial capacity of these systems. WPCLF loans also make possible the restoration and protection of some of Ohio’s highest quality water bodies through the fund’s Water Resource Restoration Sponsor Program.

Ohio EPA’s revolving loan funds are partially supported by federal grants and designed to last indefinitely through repayment of loans and investments in bonds. The loan program is managed by Ohio EPA’s Division of Environmental and Financial Assistance, with assistance from the Ohio Water Development Authority. Ohio EPA is responsible for program development and implementation, individual project coordination, and environmental and other technical reviews/approvals of projects seeking funds. The Ohio Water Development Authority provides financial management of the fund.

The Village of Bradner is making major improvements to its drinking water system. The project, funded with an interest-free loan from Ohio EPA, will increase the supply of well water and improve the water treatment process.

Specifically, the village will install two new water wells, add new and replacement feeder and electrical lines to the wells, add an eight-inch waterline from the feeder lines through the chemical feed building to the elevated storage tank, construct a new chemical feed building and add an auxiliary generator.

Created in 1998, the Water Supply Revolving Loan Account (WSRLA) provides below-market interest rate loans for compliance-related improvements for community water systems and non-profit, non-community public water systems. In this case, the full loan is for $1,303,853. The zero interest rate WSRLA financing will save Bradner an estimated $1,234,000 compared to a conventional, market-rate loan.
