The Village of Woodsfield, Ohio is pursuing funding for a project that will make improvements to the wastewater treatment plant and separate storm water flow from the sanitary sewer system. The wastewater treatment plant is old and has deteriorating components. The village desires to be proactive and replace these treatment components before they fail.
There are several areas within the village that have combined sanitary and storm water collection systems. At times during wet weather events these sanitary sewer lines overflow onto private property, ditches, and streams. This results in untreated sewage being discharged in a manner that is not in accordance with Ohio EPA requirements. The project cost is estimated at $6,215,000
Project information will be posted in the village’s municipal building. This will be discussed at an upcoming village council meeting. E.L. Robinson Engineering is assisting the village in designing the improvements.
