Water-Wastewater Phase I and Phase II

Community Development Block Grant Water and Wastewater Phase I Engineering and Planning
The Water and Wastewater Engineer program was developed to fund water and wastewater projects that require more than one year to complete through a "phased approach". Phase I of the Water and Wastewater Engineering program will cover only engineering cost plus an appropriate amount of administration fee.  Once the applicant receives their construction permit, ODOC/OCD will issue an award for construction and Phase II of the project will begin.

Water and Wastewater Construction (Phase II)
The Water and Wastewater Construction program is to fund projects that are ready for construction.  The funds may be used for construction and administration only.  Eligible entities have to use other funding sources to design their projects.
