OREGON, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Hundreds of jobs are coming to Oregon, as long as a natural gas-powered electric plant gets final approval. On Monday night, another important step was taken.
The power plant, or the Oregon Clean Energy Project, would be built in a 30-acre site at the corner of North Lallendorf and York Street. It's an $800 million plant that will convert natural gas into electricity.
The plant will need water to operate and on Monday night, Oregon city council unanimously approved a water agreement with the plant. The city will send water into the new plant and much of it will come back, into the city's water treatment plant.
"We will get paid on the way in, we'll get paid on the way out," Council President Tom Susor said. "The citizens all benefit and it's a win-win for everybody. It helps their project, helps the community."
Susor says the city will get $1 million in revenue each year, from the water that the plant uses and sends back to be treated. That's money that can be put right into improvements to Oregon's water infrastructure.
It will also keep customers satisfied.
Mayor Michael Seferian said, "We believe we are the lowest water and wastewater rates in northwest Ohio, if not in the state of Ohio and this gives an opportunity to stay there."
The Ohio EPA still has to give its final approval for the gas to electric plant but city leaders think that's just a formality. Groundbreaking could happen next spring.
