Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA)

     Under the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is responsible

for setting national limits on hundreds of substances in drinking water and also specifies various treatments that water systems must use to remove these substances.

     We continually monitor for these substances and report directly to the EPA if they are detected in the drinking water. The EPA uses this data to ensure that consumers are receiving clean water and to verify that states are enforcing the laws that regulate drinking water.

Waste Water Department Information

     In addition to overseeing the Water Department operations, Dan Hipp leads the activities of the Waste Water Department. Sanitary wastes flow through underground pipes to the treatment plant located at 13317 Riley Road. The current treatment plant was constructed in the mid-1980's. Good preventative maintenance in combination with continuous monitoring has kept the plant in good overall condition. 

Plant operations are monitored by the EPA, including unscheduled site inspections. The treatment plant continues to meet all requirements as set forth by the EPA. Please call Dan Hipp at 419-499-4161 ext. 8 or email if you have any questions regarding the operations.
