Case Study

Evaluating Alternatives And Options

Residents of Christiansburg, Ohio, already knew they had a problem with their onsite wastewater systems. System failures and odors were common, particularly during or shortly after signifi cant rainfall. In 2012, the Ohio EPA detected high levels of bacteria in the stream that runs along the west side of the village, prompting community leaders to seek cost-effective wastewater management solutions. The big question was which wastewater option would be best for their small village … and how to pay for it.
