Sewer line will be laid underneath Ramsey Park

Park visitors at Miami Township’s Paxton Ramsey Park can expect a minor inconvenience sometime this year when a new sewer line will be installed through the park.

The line, which will connect to a new sewage treatment plant, will help in closing an aging sewage treatment plant in the area.

“They said that, with the new sewer treatment facility going on in Miamiville, they needed this to abandon an existing lift station,” said Miami Township Administrator David Duckworth. “This line will allow that abandonment to occur. No question, this will help our residents. We wouldn’t have allowed it if it wouldn’t.”

The new line will effectively connect the new station, known as the Wards Corner wastewater treatment plant which will be completed sometime next year, with the Bramblewood subdivision. This will result in the closure of the Bramblewood sewage treatment plant.
