Tiffin, Ohio — The City of Tiffin Engineer’s Office has been selected to receive a $5.9 million construction loan, including $4 million in loan forgiveness, for a water pollution control project.

The project, funded through the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency’s (OEPA) Division of Environmental and Financial Assistance’s (DEFA) Water Pollution Control Loan Fund (WPCLF), is part of the City of Tiffin’s OEPA-mandated Long Term Control Plan.

The funding for the CSO 24 & 30 Inflow Reduction Project maximizes the loan forgiveness available through the program, with the remaining $1.9 million loan at a below-market interest rate, according to a press release from the city.

Areas included in the project are Rebecca Street, Ann Street, Park Place, Schonhardt Street, Main Street, Charlotte Street, Front Street, and Second Street.

“Thank you to Ohio EPA for providing these funds toward our project and great job to City Engineer Matt Watson and his team for their efforts to keep the City of Tiffin on track to complete these required projects with a reduced financial impact on our citizens,” Tiffin Mayor Dawn Iannantuono said in the press release.

The design of the project is being finalized, and the construction contract is set to be publicly bid soon. Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in summer or fall of 2023 and the project is required to be completed by OEPA by July 2024.
