  • Case Studies
  • The Village of Christiansburg, located in southwestern Ohio in the Great Miami Watershed, Champaign County, recently finished their final sewer connections. The previously unsewered Village had around 250 households with an annual median household income (MHI) of $34,792. The on-site septic wastewater treatment systems serving local residents were privately owned, with the owners responsible for maintenance, repair and monitoring. Unfortunately, most of the systems did not meet current regulations because of age, small lot size, inadequate soils, or because they discharged directly into storm sewers.
