U.S. Army Corps of Engineers funding for Brookdale/Broadview Septic System Abatement Project

Parma, OH – Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur (OH-09) announced that U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will award $1,025,000 to the City of Parma to support the Brookdale/Broadview Septic System Abatement Project. The funding is issued through the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Section 594 Infrastructure Improvement Funding Program to the Ohio Small Communities Environmental Infrastructure Group (SCEIG). The program supports water-related infrastructure and development projects that help alleviate environmental infrastructure issues throughout the state.

“This infrastructure investment is good news for our region and the City of Parma,” said Kaptur. “Projects such as this are critical to the health and safety of our communities. These upgrades will create jobs, help improve the quality of life of our residents and are crucial to continued efforts to keep our rivers and lakes clean.”

“The city truly appreciates the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ continued investment in Parma’s infrastructure projects,” said Parma Mayor Tim DeGeeter. “This is another big win for the City. Our Assistant City Engineer Hasmukh Patel has a great working relationship with the Army Corps, which only benefits our residents. We also want to thank Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur for her advocacy on the city’s behalf for this important infrastructure improvement.”

Kaptur is the Ranking Member on the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Energy and Water which provides funding for the Corps’ Section 594 program.
