Findlay City Council approved plans to remove a combined sewer overflow system. Service director Brian Thomas explained that the system can cause backups when overflowed, such as in a flood scenario. He added that the EPA wants these systems removed.
Thomas said that removing a CSO can help separate sewer pipelines.
He also added that the city will be adding flap gates to close the sewers off from any flood waters. The project will cost over $100,000 total.
