Avon Lake Regional Water intends to rehabilitate the drinking water and wastewater infrastructure on Curtis Drive and neighboring streets in Avon Lake. We will be requesting $3-4 million from the Ohio Water Pollution Control Loan Fund (WPCLF) for this project that will both provide more reliable water and wastewater services and reduce overflows into Lake Erie. This project will be paid for with revenues collected by water fees (for the water lines), wastewater fees (for the sanitary sewers), and taxes for the storm sewers and road repairs.
Ohio EPA will administer loan preparation. Construction will be undertaken by contractors selected by competitive bidding. Construction will begin 2018 and be completed 2019. Avon Lake Regional Water will receive the standard WPCLF interest (currently 1.92%).
