Two Mayors, Two Villages, One Wastewater Plan
The village of Dupont, Ohio, found itself under orders from the Ohio EPA to install a new wastewater collection and treatment system that would protect the Auglaize River from septic runoff. The system would need to be reliable, affordable, and robust enough to handle the entire wastewater flow generated by the village.
To qualify for financial assistance from the Ohio EPA, Dupont partnered with the nearby village of Cloverdale to apply for funding and create the Cloverdale Dupont Wastewater Authority. After analyzing their options, village leaders chose a Prelos® Sewer (pressurized, liquid-only sewer) followed by an AdvanTex® AX-Max™ Treatment System, both manufactured by Orenco Systems.
