Septic-to-Sewer Conversions Taking Place in Ohio

NEWS ALERT: Upgraded Sewer Lines Coming to Upper Arlington

The next phase of construction of a U.S. EPA-mandated resident septic tank to sanitary sewer conversion in a city south of Cleveland is set to begin this summer.

According to a local news post, construction for the $1.3 million projects will start in July and be completed in December.

The whole project will consist of 20 parcels, which will get sanitary sewers, as well as sanitary connections. The city of Parma received a $1,025,000 grant from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, a $160,000 grant from the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District, and a $250,000 grant from the Ohio Public Works Commission.

When Parma identified nearly 1,300 septic systems 15 years ago, it started its conversion process. Since then, about 800 Parma homes have completed conversions.
