West Farmington received state and federal grants totaling about $3 million for a new sanitary sewer system.
The village was awarded $237,000 from the Appalachian Regional Commission, $1.84 million from other federal sources and $1 million from state funding. The village will pay about $1.45 million for the system.
The new system will consist of 24,937 feet of sewer line, which will have new connections and will discharge at the Grand River.
It will serve 179 households, eight businesses, a community center and the village hall.
Construction is set to begin in August and is expected to be finished by September 2014.
