Brooklyn – Cleveland Heights Elimination System

CIP 650895-100003 

This project will extend sanitary sewer in Brooklyn Road. The new sanitary sewer extension will serve this developed area that is currently served by home sewage treatment systems (HSTS). The project will eliminate the HSTS due to the potential of the ground water contamination hazard, as the home treatment systems can leach into the groundwater table.

Construction is expected to begin in 2023 and be complete by summer or fall 2024.

Each impacted resident will receive written notifications from the City’s contractor prior to the construction work. The notifications will give information on timing of the work and contact information.

Financing for this project is being provided through the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency’s Water Pollution Control Loan Fund Program with a below market-rate loan. 

Ohio EPA has issued a Final Finding of No Significant Impact for the City of Columbus, Department of Public Utilities’ Brooklyn/Cleveland HSTS Elimination project (CIP# 650895-100003; WPCLF Loan Number CS390274-0365).  View the Final Finding of No Significant Impact(PDF, 502KB).
