BOWLING GREEN, Ohio, - The Northwestern Water and Sewer District (The District) is one step closer to building a new waterline that will supply water to the Village of McComb from the Village of North Baltimore.
On Thursday, September 22, The District Board of Trustees approved the award for two project contracts valued at approximately $7 million to Hillabrand & Sons Construction, LCC of Woodville, Ohio. An additional portion of the project was awarded to B. Hill’z Excavating, Inc. of Wayne, Ohio for $500,000.
Construction is expected to begin in the spring of 2023 and be complete by early 2024. Work will consist of three projects installing over 8 miles of new waterline. It also will ensure water quality and quantity with a larger water supply, larger water plant capacity, and a larger reservoir storage capacity.
According to District Engineer Tom Stalter, “This project will continue to provide a quality water supply and long-term affordability by eliminating the high maintenance and operating costs of the current water treatment plant in McComb.”
Funding for the project will be through a $3.3 million United States Department of Agriculture loan in addition to a $1.5 million USDA grant. Additionally, The District secured a $2 million grant from the Ohio Department of Development.
Our goal is to be the premier water and wastewater provider in Northwestern Ohio. We are committed to sound financial management, responsible environmental stewardship, responsive public service, superior customer service, and responsible economic growth. We strive to field a skilled, respectful, and cooperative workforce dedicated to the highest professional and ethical standards; we support them with appropriate training and technology.
