Per EPA regulations the Village of Swanton is sending notification for a combined sewer overflow which occurred the morning of July 14, 2021. Combined sewer systems convey both storm and sanitary sewer flows.
During periods of wet weather, either heavy rain or snow melt, the volume of the water flowing through the sewer pipes can exceed the system capacity and overflow to nearby streams and rivers through overflow/relief structures.
During wet weather these events are called combined sewer overflows, CSOs. The Village is working to reduce CSOs, by separating storm water flows from sanitary sewer flows.
If you have any questions please contact Steve Geise, WRRF Superintendent at 419.826.5891.
