Lawrence County receives loan from EPA
(WOUB) - Lawrence County is receiving a $25 million loan from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.

The low-interest loan will be used to assist in the improvement and expansion of the Union-Rome Sewer District wastewater treatment plant.

The expansion will take the plant from 1.1 million to 2 million gallons per day.

The project also includes state of the art filtration and disinfection systems.

The E-P-A says the loan for the $26 million project will save the district an estimated $5.5 million in interest.
