Ohio EPA's Water Pollution Control Loan Fund (WPCLF) Program




The Ohio EPA provides financial assistance for public and private water-related improvements through its WATER POLLUTION CONTROL LOAN FUND (WPCLF) program.


The WPCLF offers direct below-market interest loans for projects in the planning, design, or construction phase. Eligible projects include wastewater treatment plant improvements/expansions, new/replacement sanitary sewers, correction of excess inflow/infiltration into sanitary sewers, correction of combined sewer overflows (CSOs), and storm sewers.


To be eligible for a WPCLF loan, local governments must nominate a project and be approved by Ohio EPA's Division of Environmental & Financial Assistance.
