2018 DWAF: Draft Amended PMP
Recent severe weather in Ohio has resulted in disruption of service at public water systems due to the lack of back-up power sources. Having the ability to automatically switch to an alternate power source in the case of electrical grid failure would have prevented these emergencies. To help address these events, Ohio EPA is amending the 2018 Program Management Plan (PMP) to include an Emergency Generator Grant Program. Ohio EPA is proposing to dedicate $500,000 of the Local Assistance and Other State Programs set-aside to provide providing grants to small community public water systems for the purchase of emergency generators and automatic switchgear. See Appendix J for details. Ohio EPA will not hold a separate public meeting regarding this change, but is accepting public comments through Feb. 20, 2018 at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Nominations are now being accepted for financial assistance from Ohio’s WSRLA fund for Program Year 2019.

We also plan to offer the maximum amount of principal forgiveness allowed under the federal capitalization grant for this program year. These funds will be awarded to eligible projects based on a competitive ranking system described in the program management plan (PMP).
The nomination deadline for design and construction projects is March 1, 2018. Planning projects and projects associated with Harmful Algal Blooms or lead service line mapping/replacement (planning, design, or construction) may be nominated at any time during the program year.
