COLUMBUS—State Senator Bill Reineke (R-Tiffin) joined Representative McClain and Mayor Reser in applauding Governor DeWine’s announcement that $2.5 million in H2Ohio grants will go to four local communities to help improve drinking water quality and wastewater infrastructure.

"Clean drinking water is one of life's basic necessities," said Reineke. "This announcement, part of Ohio's ongoing effort to improve our water quality, is a result of all the collaborative effort made by both communities and will go a long way to improving overall health."

Two local water infrastructure projects were chosen to receive funding as part of the announcement by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency and Governor DeWine.

Bucyrus in Crawford County will receive $800,000 to extend a new waterline to connect the village of Nevada’s distribution system to Bucyrus’ distribution system. The city of Bucyrus will be providing drinking water to the village of Nevada, providing a more reliable water source to Nevada’s approximately 350 homes.

The Village of Nevada in Wyandot County will also receive $800,000 that will support the construction of a new 50,000-gallon water tower and the installation of approximately 1,650 linear feet of water line on the north end of the village to replace existing waterlines that are beyond their useful lives.
