Why We Did This Review
The U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency's Office of
Inspector General conducts
site visits of American
Recovery and Reinvestment
Act of 2009 (Recovery Act)
clean water and drinking water
projects. We selected a
project in the City of Newark,
Ohio, for review.
The City received a
$20,360,232 loan from the
Ohio Environmental
Protection Agency and the
Ohio Water Development
Authority under the Clean
Water State Revolving Fund
program. This amount
included $5,000,000 in
Recovery Act funds for
principal forgiveness. The
City will construct a high-rate
treatment facility at its
wastewater treatment plant.

What We Found
We conducted an onsite inspection of the water treatment project in the City of
Newark, Ohio, in December 2009. As part of our inspection, we toured the
project, interviewed City representatives and contractor personnel, and reviewed
documentation related to Recovery Act requirements.
Based upon our site inspection, nothing came to our attention that would require
action from the City, the State of Ohio, or the U.S. Environmental Protection
