Hecla Water with assistance from USDA has almost completed upgrades to different parts of the system. Athalia and Big Paddy residents will have the benefit of a new booster station. Federal Creek, Scottown, Slate Run and many other customers will experience less outages with improvements made to other booster stations in the area. The project is scheduled for completion in early 2017.
2016 brought upgrades to the Hecla Water infrastructure. One such improvement went to State Route 93 in the Decatur area. Residents were served out of an aging steel water tank. The tank was built in the early 1970's. It has given us many years of dependable service, however recent leaks have made repairs too costly for it to remain in operation. In the past 6 months Hecla has engineered, purchased and have constructed a new 80,000 gallon glass lined water storage tank. Life expectancy of this style of tank is about 30 years. Crews will demolish the old tank sometime in the spring of 2017.
The Ohio Utilities Protection Service requires contractors and private citizens to call or click on their website 48 hours before digging. All utilities are notified of the digging location. Disregard of this state law causes water outages in some areas. It may also cause damages to be paid by the responsible party.
