EPA rejects city’s plan for repairs to water intake

The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has rejected a timeline provided by the city for repairing an intake structure damaged by a passing barge, prompting city council’s utilities committee to move forward with plans for those repairs. Utilities Director Tim Clark provided the committee with a copy of a March 14 letter from the EPA at a meeting Tuesday in which environmental specialist Kathy Metropulos noted the city has cited that financial restraints prevent it from proceeding with the repairs until after a lawsuit against the barge company reportedly responsible has been settled, estimated to be the end of 2019.
