Nearly $5 million in federal funds are flowing the Montgomery County to help build a new wastewater system for a local village as part of a deal for its water to be treated by the city of Dayton.

U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, announced Tuesday that the Montgomery County Board of Commissioners was awarded a $2,482,000 loan and a $2,128,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Water and Waste Disposal Loan and Grant Program to construct a new wastewater collection system for the Village of Phillipsburg.

"Water and sewer infrastructure is critical to economic competiveness," Brown said. "While all Ohioans deserve access to clean water, many communities are struggling to afford costly but necessary upgrades to water systems. These new resources will help the Village of Phillipsburg make long-overdue updates and maintain a modern sewage system that can help attract new jobs and economic development."
