Ohio Environmental Protection Agency
Applications accepted on an ongoing basis

Susan Schell


The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency provides grants to reimburse the initial cost of emergency generators for community public water systems in Ohio that serve less than 2,000 people. The grant is designed to help small community water systems increase their technical capacity to provide a continuous source of safe drinking water in the event of a power outage.

Funds will cover:

  • A dedicated emergency generator capable of treating water and pumping to the distribution system during power outages to meet the average day demand
  • Automatic switch-gear
  • Training on the use of the emergency generator

Eligible applicants are Ohio community public water systems that serve less than 2,000 people and that do not have an emergency generator to power their water treatment plant.
