The first being a $799,992 critical needs grants to the Marshal County PSD 3 to expand water lines, and the second being a $500,000 critical needs grant to the Town of Triadelphia in Ohio County for improvements to its water system.
In other business, the council also approved technical reviews and requests to pursue funding for an additional 10 sewer and water projects.

The 10 projects are found to be technically feasible and approved to pursue funding. Among those listed is:
- Clay Roane PSD in Clay County: Water system improvements project estimated to cost $10 million.
