SEBRING, Ohio (WKBN) – The village of Sebring has secured a U.S. Department of Agriculture Emergency and Imminent Community Water Assistance grant.
The grant, in excess of $400,000, will help cover the village’s expenses as it fixes its water issues, according to City Manager Richard Giroux.
“This award substantially minimizes the financial impact of the water crisis to the Village of Sebring,” Giroux said.
Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown is also expected to make a major announcement in Sebring on Monday, as part of a press event.
In the latest round of Sebring water tests, all six samples that were tested were below federal allowable limits for lead. Combined with earlier voluntary test results received, 1,063 of 1,110 samples have been below the federal allowable level, according to the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.
