Ohio EPA Loan Helps the City of Oregon Protect its Drinking Water

The City of Oregon’s water treatment plant is a regional public water system serving 29,000 people in several northwestern Ohio communities and counties. Their water intake is in the western basin of Lake Erie. The shallow depth of the basin, combined with factors such as runoff, nutrients, winds, currents and invasive mussels can contribute to algae blooms from June to September of each year. Certain types of algae, in turn, release microcystins that are generally harmful upon contact.
