2014 Leesville Wastewater System
The Village of Leesville requested financial assistance for the construction of a 25,000 GPD wastewater treatment plant (WWTP). The WWTP will replace septic systems which currently serve as sewer disposal for the Village.
Per the Carroll County Health Department, approximately 85 percent of the septic systems in the Village of Leesville are failing. The project would eliminate this untreated wastewater from entering the Conotton Creek. The project is receiving $1,117,000 in funding from the Ohio EPA and $1,250,000 from the Ohio Water Development Authority.
This project will replace a large number of failing septic systems, which are discharging directly to the Conotton Creek. The project will reduce the bacteria and nutrient levels of Conotton Creek, significantly improving the water quality. The project also eliminates a major public health concern for the Village of Leesville.
Total Project Cost: $2,540,744.00
Requested Grant: $ 117,340.75
Approved Grant: $ 117,340.75
The WWTP is proposed for an area on the southeast area of the Village of Leesville in Carroll County.
This grant was approved by the Board of Directors on February 28, 2014. The grant is now completed.
