Huntington District Deputy District Commander Lt. Col. Josh Miller joined city officials at the Village of Crooksville, Ohio, on Sept. 13, 2017, at a groundbreaking ceremony for its water system replacement project. 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-inch to 8-inch 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.
