Village Administrator Greg Martin and engineer Marvin Gnagy went to Columbus recently to meet with Ohio EPA officials. Gnagy previously submitted a plan for the control of trihalomethanes in the village water and learned the EPA had approved his plan for removal. The next step is to do a pilot study for the future wastewater treatment plant and lagoon system.
Council members voted unanimously Thursday night for Martin to advertise for engineers to submit qualifications by 4 p.m. Oct. 19. They will be examined by the water/sewer committee in making a final decision.
