REOCCURRING NOTICE: Wet weather response:
During heavy rain events, storm water
enters and overloads the wastewater collection system. This can cause
overflows of very dilute untreated wastewater to Paint Creek. The City
of Washington Court House recently entered into an agreement with the
Ohio EPA to address the flow capacity of our collection system and
treatment plant, especially during wet weather periods. The agreement
requires the City to study, plan, finance and complete improvements
necessary to remove wet-weather sanitary sewer overflows.
Improvements that will be needed include
an upgrade at the wastewater treatment plant with increased flow
capacity and wastewater collection system improvements that will
transport more of the wet-weather flows for treatment and also reduce
the amount of excess storm water entering the system.
