Some federal and state dollars are going to "help build and improve the water quality in Meigs County."
U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) says Pomeroy will receive $750,000 to replace the main water line that leads to the water treatment plant.
The Appalachian Regional Commission has approved a $250,000 grant, and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency will pitch in half a million dollars.
"Water infrastructure is critical to economic competiveness," Brown said in a news release. "While all Ohioans deserve access to clean water, too many communities are struggling to afford costly, but necessary, upgrades to water systems. These new resources will help the Village of Pomeroy make long-overdue updates and maintain modern, well-connected infrastructure."
