The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) has awarded a $250,000 grant to the City of East Liverpool on Tuesday, October 4, to replace water pipes in the city. Funding for this investment was made possible through the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. 

The project will remove and replace water supply pipes that connect the water treatment plant to the city’s primary water storage tank. The new pipes will help bring water to 538 businesses and 4,280 households in the area. Local resources will provide an additional $1,844,400, bringing the total of the project funding to $2,094,400.

Senator Sherrod Brown, who helped to write this bill, said "Thanks to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, this investment will have a significant economic impact for the City of East Liverpool.”
