NOTICE

To Customers of Ohio & Lee Water & Sewer:

In April, 2010, The Ohio & Lee Township Water & Sewer Authority Board of Trustees received “Findings and Orders” from Ohio EPA because of a sewage problem that has existed in the district for many years. The OEPA took action after samples were taken and a community survey indicated that, in some areas, a failure rate up to 90% existed for on-lot septic tanks.

The finds and Orders requested that we sign an agreement to abate the sewage problem. The Board refused to sign the orders until we could be assured that the system we construct could be paid for without extremely high monthly charges for our customers.

The Ohio & Lee Township Water & Sewer Authority has recently received a letter from the Ohio Attorney General’s office indicating that we are in violation of Ohio’s Water Pollution Control Laws. This is in no way any accusation that the water supply is contaminated. Your water supply is absolutely safe and is tested daily.

The Board of Trustees would like to assure customers that, regardless of any litigation initiated by The Ohio Attorney General, we will continue seeking design and funding alternatives that can result in an affordable solution to our sewage problem. Currently, the Board is making application to the Water Pollution Control Loan Fund for monies to design and construct a collector and treatment system using a phased approach. Phase I being the Hannibal/Duffy area.

This will be a long process and many questions are still unanswered. If you have questions or comments, the Board regularly meets the second Monday of each month at 7 p.m. at the office in Sardis. You may call 740-483-1542 or e-mail to ohioleewater@att.net
