“I’m pleased that 594 funding was made available for this important infrastructure project geared toward protecting surface water quality from contaminant discharges,” said Frank A. O’Connor, Buffalo District, project manager. “The aging on-site wastewater systems in the unincorporated village of Alvordton are in failing condition based on observed conditions in the tributaries to Mill Creek.”
“This project further demonstrates the County’s commitment to addressing failing septic systems and protecting surface water quality in the Mill Creek Watershed,” said Todd J. Roth, Williams County Engineer.
Congress passed the Water Resources Development Act of 1999 (Public Law 106-53), Section 594 to help alleviate environmental infrastructure problems throughout the state of Ohio. The Section 594 authority allows USACE to reimburse 75% of the eligible design and/or construction costs up to the funding limit.
