“Due to weather related construction delays, the necessity for unexpected upgrades to the existing City of Coshocton water infrastructure, COVID-19 impacts on the City’s workforce, and delays in shipping of key materials needed to complete the project, the completion of the Coshocton Water project has been extended out until the end of March. New meter installation will begin the middle of March and the tentative date of overall project completion is the end of May to the beginning of June. Please contact the City of Coshocton Water Department at 740-622-2626 with any questions.”

Joint News Release
Coshocton/West Lafayette Water agreement
Monday Feb. 25, 2019
Coshocton Mayor Steve Mercer and West Lafayette Mayor Steve Bordenkircher are very pleased to announce that a tentative agreement has been reached for the Village to purchase water from Coshocton. After the November vote by Village residents and only several months of negotiating, both sides have agreed on the terms and will be presenting to their respective councils on Monday night for first readings. A total of three readings are required with a final majority vote to pass. The public is encouraged to attend the meetings and offer comment or call your local Mayor's office.
The Ohio EPA has been a leading proponent of this regionalization project and providing substantial funding that is making this long considered partnership possible.
If approved, the tentative schedule is for all funding applications to be finalized this year along with the engineer's drawings. Groundbreaking early next year should mean the conversion to city water will occur later in 2020.
