Aqua Ohio Completes $10.3M of Improvements

STRUTHERS, Ohio – Aqua Ohio marked the end of its 2017 construction season announcing the completion of $10.3 million in improvements in its water distribution system, water treatment plant and a new operations center that will open later this month.

“Water systems need continual maintenance and replacement to assure reliable service,” said Jennifer Johnson, Aqua Ohio’s area manager. “We’ll be making at least $13 million of additional improvements just in our Struthers system in 2018, as part of a total of $30 million to be invested throughout northeast Ohio next year.”

This spring, Aqua broke ground on a new $2.5 million center in the Castlo Industrial Park in downtown Struthers. Operations will be moved this month to the 14,300 square-foot building, which includes enough space to enable Aqua to welcome future customers to its family.

The office will serve customers in Struthers, Poland, Lowellville and New Middletown, and the townships of Beaver, Boardman, Canfield, Coitsville, Poland and Springfield.

Currently, Aqua provides water to approximately 300,000 people in northeast Ohio and 500,000 statewide.
