WATER & SEWER SERVICES
We also are making efforts to continue processing sewage at our Wastewater Treatment Plant in the safest and most economical manner. These two utilities remain operational, but major changes must be made to carry on the level of service to which we have all become accustomed.
Sandusky’s Water Treatment Plant was built in 1940. At that time, it served approximately 5,000 customers. Since its original construction, the plant has merely been "improved" through replacement of certain equipment; we have more than doubled our customer base and desperately need to make major renovation to both plants. Currently, Sandusky’s Water Treatment Plant serves approximately 10,500 customers within the City limits, in addition to approximately 7,350 others in surrounding communities.
The wastewater treatment plant was built in the early 1950’s and improvements were made to it in the late 1970’s. These improvements had a 20-year design length.
Sandusky administrators have recently looked very seriously into both of these operations and have established a long-range plan for upgrading both facilities (see front panel).
Over the next three-year period, Sandusky’s water and sewer customers will see rate increases which will be utilized specifically for upgrades to both the water and wastewater treatment plants.
City of Sandusky water and sewer customers must realize that the mentioned improvements are necessary to continue providing water and sewer service. We are available to provide additional information specific to any project in our water and sewer operations. We encourage you to become interested and involved in knowing about the water and sewer services which the City provides.
