Williams/Behm HSTS Elimination Project

This project (CIP 650895-100001) will extend sanitary sewer service in the Williams Rd/ Behm Rd area. The new sanitary sewer extension will serve this previously developed area that currently have 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 ground water table.  

Construction is expected to begin in second quarter of 2021 and be complete by second quarter of 2022.

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