Water Treatment Plant Evaluation
The Village of Holgate operates a groundwater treatment plant that contains five vertical pressure filters for the removal of iron and manganese. The age of the plant, coupled with high levels of bromide has resulted in recurring violations of the running annual average for TTHM formation, a disinfection byproduct. As result, the Ohio EPA has issued findings and orders and has required Village staff to explore options to improve the water treatment plant, reduce disinfection byproduct formation and explore regional water service alternatives.
The resulting general plan is currently in development and will be submitted in March 2023.
