Project funded through Ohio EPA program

TIFFIN, Ohio – Jan. 26, 2023 – The City of Tiffin Engineer’s Office was recently selected to receive a $5.9 million construction loan, which includes $4 million in loan forgiveness. 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 being done as part of the City of Tiffin's OEPA mandated Long Term Control Plan.

Funding for the CSO 24 & 30 Inflow Reduction Project maximizes the amount of loan forgiveness available through the program, with the remaining $1.9 million loan at below market interest rate. 

Areas included as part of this project include Rebecca Street, Ann Street, Park Place, Schonhardt Street, Main Street, Charlotte Street, Front Street and Second Street.

Tiffin Mayor Dawn Iannantuono said, “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.”

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