Ontario Officials Talk About Waste Water Treatment Plant
There has been some talk in the city of Ontario about possibly building its own waste water treatment plant. Right now, Ontario has a contract with the city of Mansfield for its wastewater treatment, which will see rates rise 10% this year. A study done by a firm out of Bowling Green says Ontario could save $305,000 to $840,000 per year with its own wastewater treatment plant. RichlandSource.com reports, Ontario would pay $2.4 to $2.6 million per year with its own plant, where it would pay $2.9 to 3.3 million for service from Mansfield. Ontario Service Safety Director Jeff Wilson said the idea to build a waste water treatment plant is still in its early stages.
