The board of commissioners approved WSOS to apply for a nomination for a principle forgiveness loan program from the Ohio EPA.
Cindy Brooks of WSOS said if the nomination is accepted, she hopes the EPA will fully fund the WSOS with $280,000 for 20 septic systems for the home sewage treatment program, which is low-income oriented.
Brooks said the Seneca County Health Department is interested in the program. She said each system would cost $14,000, based on the 2011 program.
Brooks said she would administer the program for another year.
In other news, commissioner Jeff Wagner said the board is going to have to schedule a meeting with the commissioners from Huron County, to settle an issue surrounding Meggison Creek, which runs in both counties.
