Posted: Updated:

EAST LIVERPOOL, Ohio - The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency is providing two low-interest loans totaling more than $755,000 to the city of East Liverpool to replace deteriorating and inaccessible drinking water and sanitary sewer lines.

The upgrades will help ensure that customers continue to receive safe and reliable water and sewer services.

A loan totaling more than $500,000 from the Ohio Water Supply Revolving Loan Account will be used to replace and relocate two drinking water transmission mains.

The city will install nearly 2,400 feet of waterlines.

A second loan of more than $220,000 from the combined Ohio Water Pollution Control Loan Fund will be used to replace and relocate a 70-year-old sanitary sewer force main line.
