2014 Annual Report



On December 11, 2014, the Ohio Water Development Authority modified how the Fresh Water interest rate is calculated.  Please click here for more information.


The Ohio Water Development Board created the Un-Sewered Area Assistance Program at the May 30, 2013 board meeting.  This new program is designed to provide gap financing for the construction of  new sewer systems for communities with failing on-site systems.  The guidelines for the new program are available here.  The total funding amount for the program is limited to $7.5 million.  Application for the funding is to be made in the same manner as traditional OWDA financing.  Application forms are available here.  If you have questions regarding the program and community eligibility, please contact Ken Heigel, Chief Engineer.  



Puzzled by your community water system?” is a three-session workshop for Local Officials.  This workshop is designed to assist water boards, township trustees, city council members, county commissioners, and other local officials in obtaining the answers they need to make decisions about developing a new water system or upgrading an existing one.  The workshop includes “Putting Together the Pieces of a Community Water System”; “Water Supply Drop-By” professionally led field trip; and “Assessing Community Needs and Gathering Resources”.  For detailed information or to schedule a workshop, click here for more information.  


OWDA Partnering with the Ohio Human Trafficking Task Force to Raise Statewide Awareness

In support of Governor Kasich's new public awareness campaign, the Ohio Water Development Authority joins Ohio’s ongoing fight against human trafficking; the illegal trade of people for commercial sex or forced labor exploitation that enslaves approximately 1,000 Ohioans every year. 

The new campaign, led by the Ohio Human Trafficking Task Force, gives Ohioans new resources for how they can personally help combat the problem by reporting suspicious activity. For more details including resources and training opportunities, click here.
