The Jackson County Times-Journal

JACKSON— The City of Jackson received some welcome news, when U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) announced $250,000 in federal funding was approved for the City of Jackson.

The funding was awarded by the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC), and will be used to make needed improvements to Jackson’s wastewater treatment plant. Those improvements will enhance service to more than 2,500 customers in Jackson and Lick Townships.

“Proper wastewater management and storage is critical to the infrastructure of Ohio communities,” said Brown in his media release. “This funding will help improve service for rural customers and improve energy efficiency in Jackson.”

The $250,000 from ARC will give Jackson the opportunity to increase its wastewater storage capacity to six million gallons to optimize treatment plant operations, improve energy efficiency, and to purchase new plant equipment and new instrumentation. The improvements at the wastewater treatment plant will mitigate operational issues.
