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.

How are people on fixed incomes supposed to be able to afford these costs? Hopefully, those in power will allow low income home owners the chance to set up a payment plan.

How about all of those unfortunate folks who were forced to install ultra-expensive home sewage treatment plants in their front yard in place of septic systems just before sewer lines were installed?

Talk about a loss of money!

The EPA, perpetrator of this situation, should reimburse those victims of extortion.

Joe is on the mark but let's expand. Trumbull County Health Dept. and Commisioners have a vested interest to control septic tank installation that the other 87 counties do not - I suggest follow the money. Many in Trumbull would follow EPA guidelines and update if the new septic was given a 20 year granting. Thus not many will upgrade septics and will investigate the 20 year plan on sewers and let a sale of their property be the trigger to ugrade septics. I suggest the slowness of sewers to reach Trumbull parts is money related. Not many will be double charged for septics and sewers. The stench of this problem is far and above actual septic/sewers. More important is to achieve public water in areas now that salt water injection wells are about.
