Water District Update: Macedonia

Here’s an accurate update (read carefully because we have much paperwork to do) on the Phase One: Macedonia Water Project:

Hecla Water, acting as a good neighbor, contracted with Strand Associates on 01/15/2020 to complete a preliminary engineering report (PER) for this project. As part of the PER Strand will complete a cost estimate for Hecla running water to
Macedonia Hill and Aqua running water to Macedonia Hill. Strand anticipates having cost estimates completed by March 1 for both alternatives, but the contract says that the actual PER will not be completed until May 1, 2020.

It is important for RCAP (Ohio Rural Community Assistance Partnership) to have at least the cost estimates by March 1 so They can finalize and submit a project nomination form to Ohio EPA by
the deadline of March 4. RCAP will work with both Hecla and Aqua after that to
prepare two nomination forms and have them ready so when Strand gives us
the cost estimates by March 1 so we can submit the nomination form which is
for the least costly alternative. So at this point, we don't know whether
Hecla or Aqua will be the applicant for Ohio EPA financing.

Once we submit the nomination form by March 4 to Ohio EPA we will wait for the Ohio EPA to score the project, along with all the other projects in Ohio. The Ohio EPA will release their Program Management Plan in May, 2020
and that will tell us what financing terms either Hecla or Aqua are being offered for the project. After that either Hecla or Aqua will need to start designing the project and RCAP will work with them to complete the actual Ohio EPA financing application and also work with the county
to complete the CDBG RPIG application. The best case would have this project being under construction by the spring of 2021.

As you gather around your Thanksgiving meal, please remember the many families that do not have the basic necessity of running tap water. They, instead, must haul water, use bottled water or worry over tainted water from old, dug wells. Here we show the samples taken from places on Macedonia Hill. We will not rest until families enjoy safe, clean running water in all of Lawrence County. Share!

Please be advised that technicians for the Lawrence County Rural Water District will be drawing samples from dug wells in the Macedonia Hill Rural Water Region starting Friday, November 8th and continuing for for several days thereafter. These samples will be drawn and tested for grant study data only and will not pose any liability for the landowner. This operation comes at not cost to the landowner. We would appreciate your cooperation in this matter. The needed samples will help to demonstrate that we need running water in this region. Share where appropriate.

We’re in the final stages of doing survey work pertaining to residents who want to see running water installed throughout the region (Lawrence County, OH).

We recently launched an official survey in the Macedonia Hill region of Lawrence County, OH. Survey results help us create a data base for the potential water recipients of the region. We only need a few more survey submissions to reach our required number for a valid survey. Teams now travel the region, going house to house. The study will help us qualify for grants, loans and other funding sources.

From the Bible in the Book of Numbers (Old Testament):

“9. So Moses took the staff from the Lord’s presence, just as he commanded him. 10. He and Aaron gathered the assembly together in front of the rock and Moses said to them, “Listen, you rebels, must we bring you water out of this rock?” 11. Then Moses raised his arm and struck the rock twice with his staff. Water gushed out, and the community and their livestock drank.”

Lawrence County rural areas need water. The County have plenty of rocks! We plan to strike the Rocks! We will bring water.

We have over 400 miles of Township, County and State Roads in Lawrence County (OH) without running water (City Water) going to the residences on those roads. These folk either haul water or rely on wells. Sulphur, toxins and other contaminants spoil many wells in Lawrence County. Impurities taint many cisterns. We’re moving forward with the help of many agencies and entities to bring clean running water to the under served families and citizens. We recently held a very successful meeting with top officials from Columbus on our water needs. They came from Columbus here. We have a Governor who has pledged to help us. We’re making progress. We see more than just empty promises! Let’s work together! Please Like and Share to show your concern.

Hello, with all that is going on in this country today we have been hearing talk of possible closing the bridges from state to state. If that happens would all of us that has to travel across the bridges to West Virginia to haul water to our homes get some pass or permit to cross ?
