Woodsfield cleans up
(WOUB) - The Village of Woodsfield is asking the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency to approve a plan for dealing with a sewage problem.

Woodsfield's wastewater treatment plant does not have sufficient capacity at times...because rain water and snow melt are getting into the system.

E-P-A spokeswoman Heather Lauer says that results in the escape of untreated sewage.

The new plan would fix that by keeping sewage separated from storm water.

Lauer could not say how much this will cost.

That and other details will be made available at a required public hearing and informational session on Thursday.
