Trumbull County commissioners approve steps in the Squaw Creek sewer project


The Trumbull County commissioners have approved completion of the third phase of a sewer project along state Route 193 in Vienna Township and an important step in the fourth phase.

The third phase of the Little Squaw Creek Interceptor sewer project, which runs from Litco Drive 1,450 feet north to Squaw Creek Country Club, is complete, and commissioners approved a resolution Tuesday establishing the final assessments ($51.87 per front foot and $3,103 per service connection) to the affected property owners.

The project cost was $1.7 million.

They also voted to receive the petitions signed by affected property owners in the fourth phase who are in the area from Squaw Creek Country Club north to Vienna Center and east a short distance on Warren-Sharon Road.

The fourth phase will serve a number of property owners in Vienna Center, including Mathews High School and a church next to it.

The sewer line will extend just north of the state Route 193-Warren-Sharon Road intersection to just north of the IGA grocery store parking lot, said Rex Fee, executive director of the Trumbull County Sanitary Engineer’s Office.

Construction of Phase 4, which will cost about $2.3 million, is likely to begin this summer.

The fifth phase will serve the Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport and continue north of that to the former Airport Inn restaurant.

The Squaw Creek sewer project is one that the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency and the county agreed to complete to alleviate environmental hazards caused by ineffective septic systems.
