WEST FARMINGTON, Ohio (WYTV) – A project aimed at bringing water to West Farmington is another step closer to completion Tuesday.
But now, whether or not it’ll happen is in the hands of the Ohio EPA.
The agency asked county officials late last year to look at ways to bring the village water from another source in the county, and presented them with a unique funding opportunity for the $12.5 million project.
The loan from the Ohio EPA tentatively includes 0% interest on the loan for 30 years and 50% principle forgiveness.
The project would connect the line from Braceville to West Farmington and encompass some areas in between. But in order to keep it going — they had to see if folks living in the project zone would actually be interested.
They surveyed more than 2400 properties, and after getting those results came up with a plan.
