RELEASE: Rep. Tim Ryan Announces $250,000 Grant for the Trumbull County Kermont Heights Sanitary Sewer Improvements Project

Youngstown, Ohio – Congressman Tim Ryan is announcing a grant of $250,000 from the Appalachian Regional Commission to the Trumbull County Commissioners for the Kermont Heights Sanitary Sewer Improvements Project. This project involves the construction of approximately 17,055 linear feet of mainline sanitary sewer pipe to service approximately 157 existing households, three churches and five businesses in northern Hubbard Township and approximately 1,000 acres of vacant prime real estate for economic development. The sewer project will provide a new collection system for properly disposing wastewater, reducing exposure to storm runoff and improving water quality in the Shenango River watershed.

“Projects like this are perfect examples of how federal, state and local agencies can come together to solve real problems and a reminder of why belonging to the Appalachian Regional Commission was an important decision that continues to pay-off for the 17th Congressional District,” said Congressman Tim Ryan. “Infrastructure investments like this improve the lives of thousands of people in our area, and put us on a strong foundation for development opportunities and a brighter economic future.”

In addition to the Appalachian Regional Commission grant, a combination of state and local agencies have agreed to provide additional funds for the project. The Ohio Public Works Commission will provide an additional $250,000 and local sources through the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency Water Pollution Control Loan Fund will provide $2,853,991 bringing the total project funding to $3,353,991.
