DANVILLE — The Danville Village Council took the first step toward improving its wastewater system.
At its meeting Monday, council passed a resolution as an emergency that allows the administration to apply for, accept and enter into a water pollution control loan for the wastewater system improvements and upgrades project.
The village will be applying for loans that will help it fix the 20-year-old pumps at the water treatment station. The project also includes fixing leaks in the manholes and pipes running to the treatment plant. This project will help the village meet the new Ohio Environmental Protection Agency standards of ammonia discharge in the sewage system.
With the hardship loans and state forgiveness for a portion of the project, the village could save $80,000 on the approximately $340,000 project.
