Water Resources Department on target with capital projects

BATAVIA, Ohio – Lyle Bloom, director of the Clermont County Water Resources Department, detailed the department’s 2018-22 water and sewer capital improvement projects before Commissioners at Session on Monday, June 25. The plan was approved by Commissioners on June 27.

Water Resources replaces an average of 20,000 feet of water main and rehabilitates approximately 15,000 feet of sanitary sewer annually, Bloom said.

In 2018, Water Resources is spending more than $6 million on wastewater-related construction projects in the Village of Bethel, Williamsburg Township, Miami Township, Goshen Township and Pierce Township.

It is spending more than $3 million on water construction projects in Batavia Township, Miami Township, Stonelick Township, and Union Township.

The department will be working on the designs for a number of projects slated to begin construction in 2019.

The Water Resources Department capital projects are funded through the fees charged to its water and sewer customers, as well as some state and federal grants.
