Project Development & Funding

In mid 2024, the County of Summit will commence with the engineering design to construct and install sanitary sewer collection and water reclamation treatment facilities in the designated Village sewer district to address ongoing environmental issues affecting the Cuyahoga River. A preliminary engineering report was completed by Environmental Design Group (consultant) that established an initial cost estimate of $10 million. Summit County Executive Ilene Shapiro has set aside $7.5 million of local funds and has obtained a $500,000 grant from the State of Ohio (H2Ohio funds). This funding provides a financially viable plan to bring sewer service to its residents and businesses. The County is pursuing additional resources to close the project funding gap and ensure the project moves forward to bring further environmental enhancement and sustainability to the Cuyahoga River and provide critical infrastructure facilities to a gateway community to the CVNP.
