The Village of Montpelier (Williams County) will receive a grant to separate the sanitary and storm sewers in the area of East Court Street and East Avenue. The grant is through the Residential Public Infrastructure Program and funded by the Community Development Block Grant.
The village will receive a $550,000 grant to install 14,283 linear feet of sewer lines and replace 50 sewer laterals for 50 households. The improvements reduce the likelihood of basement flooding during heavy rains. It will benefit 82 households in the area.
“Reliable infrastructure is a matter of health, safety and quality of life for Ohioans,” said David Goodman, director of the Ohio Development Services Agency.
The Residential Public Infrastructure Program is administered by the Ohio Development Services Agency’s Office of Community Development.
