Aqua Ohio breaks ground on new multi-million dollar Struthers facility

Posted: Updated:

A multi-million dollar effort to upgrade water service to Mahoning County is underway after a groundbreaking ceremony Monday. 

Aqua Ohio officials, as well as Struthers Mayor Terry Stocker and the Western Reserve Port Authority, were on hand to kick-off the efforts to build a new facility to house office space and maintenance personnel. 

Jennifer Johnson, the Aqua Ohio Area Manager for the Struthers Division says the new 14,000 square foot building will consolidate all staff under one roof and help Aqua better serve local customers, especially in the winter months. 

Johnson says the 2.5 million dollar building is part of a total 10.5 million dollar investment in Mahoning County. In addition to the new building, AquaOhio is working on repairing and replacing water lines and has planned upgrades to the water treatment facility on Poland Ave. 

Aqua Ohio serves ten communities in Mahoning County: the City of Struthers, Villages of Lowellville, Poland, and New Middletown and portions of Beaver, Boardman, Coitsville, Canfield, Poland, and Springfield townships. In all Aqua provides water for more than 60,000 customers in the county.
