  3. 3. ABOUT GREATER OHIO POLICY CENTER: SUBJECT AREA EXPERTISE Urban regeneration Sustainably revitalize urban cores and neighborhoods Transportation & infrastructure modernization Develop improved & modern infrastructure Regional growth Promote regional economic development & collaborative governance structures
  4. 4. ABOUT GREATER OHIO POLICY CENTER: HOW WE DO OUR WORK • Develop and publish research • Use research to advocate for practical policy solutions at the state level • Assist communities through strategic assistance and dissemination of best practices • Build collaborative partnerships to extend our reach and ability to impact change
  5. 5. SUSTAINABLE REDEVELOPMENT POLICIES TO WATCH FOR IN THE 2017 BUDGET PROCESS Urban revitalization policies • Water/sewer upgrades – Combined sewer overflows, regionalization & asset management, lead service lines • Brownfield Remediation • Application of public nuisance statutes to commercial and industrial properties (local government control of blight) Transportation modernization policies • Dedicated Funding for public transit – Sales Tax on Medicaid Managed Care Organizations will expire in 2017 • Statewide policy to ensure state’s roadways safely accommodate all types of users
  6. 6. Wastewater Treatment, 11.3% Conveyance System Repair, 22.6% New Conveyance Systems, 8.7% Combined Sewer Overflow Correction, 51.2% Stormwater Management Program, 6.1% OHIO NEEDS $14.1 BILLION FOR WASTEWATER TREATMENT INFRASTRUCTURE, 2012 - 2032 U.S. EPA Office of Water. Clean Watersheds Needs Survey 2012 Report to Congress – State Fact Sheets. Ohio CWNS 2012.
  7. 7. OHIO NEEDS $12.1 BILLION FOR DRINKING WATER INFRASTRUCTURE, 2011-2030 U.S. EPA Office of Water. Drinking Water Infrastructure Needs Survey and Assessment. Fifth Report to Congress. EPA 816-R-13-006. April 2013. Transmission and Distribution 66% Source 4% Treatment 18% Storage 10% Other 2%
  8. 8.  No safe level of lead exposure in children  Ohio estimated to have about 10% of the 6.1 million total lead service lines nationally (AWWA National Survey)  Corrosion can controlled through chemical treatment but risk still remains  EPA requires testing under “lead and copper rule” but protocols criticized as weak and not enforced (e.g., pre- flushing techniques and failure to target test sites)  Customers usually own service line from street to the home, leading to disputes about who pays for replacement FLINT, SEBRING AND LEAD POISONING: INFRASTRUCTURE AND PUBLIC HEALTH
  9. 9. The water system did not know the location of lead service lines The water utility and state regulators employed dubious lead sampling techniques Customers had little or no awareness of the potential for lead in their drinking water Utility construction was taking place without notifying customers of the potential for lead contamination Lead service line replacement is often looked at as unnecessary, costly, and complex -- Eric Rothstein, Member of Michigan Governor’s Flint Water Advisory Task Force (Journal AWWA 2016) WHAT IS NOT UNUSUAL ABOUT FLINT?
  10. 10.  Holds public water systems more accountable for recording and reporting lead and copper levels.  Imposes stricter monitoring of public water systems’ compliance with lead and copper rules and imposes penalties for not complying with reporting and recording requirements.  Requires mapping of possible lead pipe lines by water systems every five years  Requires of notice to resident within two days of receiving contaminated results from tests.  HB 390 - $12 million for grants to schools to replace lead fixtures ($15,000 per school, OFCC) OHIO HOUSE BILL 512 (2016)
  11. 11. BROWNFIELD REMEDIATION  Ohio still has over 10,000 contaminated “brownfield” sites  Brownfield sites pose environmental hazards and depress property values in surrounding neighborhoods  Many urban areas are “built out” and lack available land for commercial and industrial development  If responsible party cannot be found, public funds are usually needed to “level the playing field” with greenfield sites  JobsOhio Revitalization grant program focuses on sites with strong economic development potential
