Village of Limaville Regional Infrastructure Improvement Project Receives Design and Construction Assistance from USACE
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Buffalo District has assessed the environmental impacts of the planned Village of Limaville Regional Infrastructure Improvement Project, OH, and has concluded that this project would not have significant adverse impacts on the quality of the environment.
“The purpose of the project is to provide economically efficient sanitary sewage treatment for the village in order to eliminate the discharge of untreated sewage into surrounding surface waters,” said Frank O’Connor, USACE Buffalo District project manager. “Section 594, the Ohio Environmental Infrastructure Program, of the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) of 1999 authorizes USACE to reimburse 75 percent of the design and construction costs for the proposed project.”
The Stark County Metropolitan Sewer District has partnered with USACE to complete this project which will serve approximately 65 homes within the village. Wastewater contamination from residences and businesses in Limaville has been a longstanding problem in the area. Currently, homes and businesses within the village utilize on-site sewage treatment systems for wastewater treatment, which are contaminating the drinking water source for the nearby city of Alliance. The proposed sanitary sewer system improvements are intended to provide economically efficient sanitary sewage treatment for the village in order to eliminate the discharge of untreated sewage into surrounding surface waters.
Under the proposed plan, Section 594 Program funding would be utilized to design and construct a new separate sanitary sewer system for the village of Limaville. The village would be provided with a sanitary sewer system to serve 65 homes and businesses within its corporation limits. Wastewater would be treated at the Alliance Wastewater Treatment Plant, a regional plant that is regulated by a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit overseen by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency. For most of the project, the study area consists of a corridor that is 110 feet wide along the centerline of existing roads.
