Central State University and Montgomery County have signed a $400,000 deal to develop a model for a new water system.

Central State will work with the county to develop a “smart” water distribution and waste water collection model for the entire Montgomery County water system, according to the university.

The agreement will be in place through April 2020 and will “enable both organizations to promote further dialogue and coordination.”

The university plans to utilize expertise from its International Center for Water Resources management on the project. CSU’s water resources center has worked to address both global and statewide water quality issues, according to the university.

“We are excited our University will play a key role in Montgomery County’s water distribution strategies as we increasingly institutionalize both our research and our economic development mandates,” said Alton Johnson, dean of Central State’s college of engineering, science, technology, and agriculture.

CSU is “committed to collaborating with municipalities,” Johnson said. Late last year, Central State began partnering with the City of Trotwood to provide agricultural research and extension activities to the city.
