Congressman Bill Johnson (R-Marietta) released the following statement after the Army Corps of Engineers signed a Project Partnership Agreement with the Village of Hanoverton for installation of a sanitary sewer system:

“I was pleased to support the grant funding for this important project that has been long-sought after by local and county officials,” Bill Johnson said. “Thank you to the Pittsburgh District of the Army Corps of Engineers for their hard work to bring this project closer than ever to fruition. It has taken a long time - almost two-decades - to get to this point.”

In 2002, the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OEPA) ordered the village to replace its residential septic systems with municipal sewer service. This project consists of the construction of a 50,000 gallon/day modular treatment plant, pump station, and 30,000 feet of sanitary sewer line in Hanoverton. When complete (estimated to be June 2021), the system will transport wastewater to the existing Kensington Wastewater Treatment Facility maintained by the county.

The loan was made possible through the Environmental Infrastructure Program (Section 594) of the Water Resources Development Act of 1999.  Seventy-five percent of the initial cost, just over $1 million, will be taken on by the federal government and paid back through a reimbursement program.
