$1.8 million federal grant to aid Findlay water flow project
Federal authorities awarded a $1.8 million grant to the Findlay Township Municipal Authority on Wednesday to improve water flows to newly created business parks around Pittsburgh International Airport.
The Economic Development Administration awarded the money that will paired with a $1.5 million state grant to pay for the $3.4 million project. Plans call for a 19,000-foot-long, 16-inch line to be installed this year to improve water flow at Clinton Commerce Park, Findlay Industrial Park and the Chapman Commerce Center in Findlay.
Officials said development had limited the availability of adequate water pressure for fire departments during peak demand at the buildings.
