The Madison County Sanitary Sewer and Water District includes the following treatment systems.
Sewer District 1
The Madison County Sanitary Sewer and Water District provides sanitary sewer service for the businesses located along US 42 near the I70 intersection. The sanitary sewer system includes a gravity flow collection system, a lift station to pump waste from the northern areas along US 42 under I70 and a wastewater treatment facility. The system operates under US EPA and Ohio EPA regulations and is issued an operating permit known as the National Pollution Discharge Elimination System permit. This permit provides the standards set by the Ohio EPA for testing of the wastewater before and after treatment and ultimately discharged in to Glade Run. The facility has a designed capacity of 150,000 gallons per day and may be expanded as residential and commercial development occurs in the immediate area.
Sewer District 2
Sewer District 2 was designed and constructed to serve the areas along SR 56 and Old Columbus Road, including Somerford Township and Choctaw Lake. The sanitary sewer system includes a low pressure sewer system in Choctaw Lake, individual grinder pump stations and a wastewater treatment facility. The treatment facility is designed to treatment 300,000 gallons of wastewater per day and operates under a National Pollution Discharge Elimination System permit issued by the Ohio EPA. The facility operates the treatment plant to ensure compliance with federal and state regulations, including performing analytical laboratory test of the water stream prior to discharging in Deer Creek.
The Madison County Sanitary Sewer and Water District constructed a sanitary sewer collection system, wastewater treatment facility, water distribution system and water treatment plant to serve the Camp Wissalohican development in 1998. This area is located near SR142 along High Free Pike and serves the 21 homes currently located in the development. Both treatment plants operate under the regulations of the US EPA and the Ohio EPA, including analyzing the wastewater and water for proper treatment. The residents are serviced by the gravity flow sanitary sewer collection system and a small treatment facility. The water supply consists of a deep water well and treatment facility which includes disinfection of the treated water.
The Burr Oak subdivision is located just outside the village limits of Mt. Sterling and consists of a gravity flow sanitary sewer system which ultimately flows to the Mt. Sterling wastewater treatment facility. The businesses and residents are required to install a water meter on their individual well supply as the meter is read monthly to determine the customer billing for the sanitary sewer service.
