Ross County, Ohio– The Ross County Water Company will soon have a new tool to help encourage business development thanks to a grant from Fluor- BWXT (FBP).

FBP donated $13,750 to the Dynamic Water Study that will enable various scenarios for future development. 

“This is an investment in the future of Ross County and the surrounding community,” said FBP President and CEO Greg Wilkett. “Being able to show companies the ability to support their needs instead of offer estimates is a significant bonus in trying to land new investments and create job growth in southern Ohio”

The Ross County Water Company provides residential and commercial water service to nearly 14,000 customers in rural areas of Ross, Pike, Vinton, Hocking, Pickaway, and Jackson counties.

“This tool will allow us to predict capacities and future infrastructure build-out to support the needs of Ross County industry,” states Tammy Eallonardo, Director of Greater Chillicothe & Ross County Development. “We are transitioning from a reactive to proactive form of development – planning for our future!”
