Village of Crooksville, OH Water System Groundbreaking

Published Sept. 7, 2017

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – The Village of Crooksville, Ohio, will host a groundbreaking ceremony for its water system replacement project at the Village Park at 1 Park Drive on Wednesday, Sept. 13, 2017, at 10:30 a.m.

Since January 2013 the Village of Crooksville has experienced 65 waterline breaks due to the aged system built in the 1920s, resulting in millions of gallons of water loss per month and numerous boil water advisories. The new system will address those issues and replace many undersized waterlines, resulting in improved service to customers.    

The project includes the design and construction of a water system replacement for the water system that provided service to approximately 1,609 customers in the Village of Crooksville in Perry County, Ohio. Approximately 60,000 feet of 3" to 8" waterline will be replaced, including valves, hydrants, service connections, sub-metering locations and some residential water meter replacement. In addition, the project includes replacement of a 200,000 gallon storage tank.

Speakers at the groundbreaking will include Mayor Fred Redfern, Huntington District Commander Col. Philip Secrist, Holly Tucker with the Ohio EPA-SE District Office, and David Goodman with the Ohio Development Services Agency.

The stakeholders in the project are the Village of Crooksville, the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, Jobes Henderson & Associates, Inc. (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hull & Associates, Inc.), and the Small Communities Environmental Infrastructure Group.
