Sewer District 6 created

By Austin Schmidt - [email protected]

EATON — The Preble County Commissioners met Wednesday, July 8 and established Sewer District 6 in the board’s continued efforts to find solution to water contamination in the Glenwood area.

Commissioners approved a motion to establish SD6, which will cover homes from Woodside Drive, along U.S. 35, to Stover Road. Sample Drive, Circle Lane, Julia Drive, Vanessa and Rebecca and parts of Quaker Trace will also become part of the service areas.

Commissioners said the establishment of the district will not make every home in the area become part of the district, but simply establishes an area of service for the district and prepares for possible service to the homes in the future.

Commissioners also hosted another Glenwood area work session, to have discussions to establish a committee to help find solutions to the contamination problem. Commissioner Chris Day said he has received positive feedback and interest from people to be in the group, but is still waiting for a few more commitments to the committee.

The group will have a proposed budget of $700,000, which is based on 10 percent of the EPAs estimate of $6 million for the entirety of the project.

The next work group meeting will be on Wednesday, July 22 at 9 a.m. during the regularly scheduled commissioners meeting at the Preble County Courthouse.
