*** SEWER LINE CLEANING IN THE VILLAGE ***
The Village will be continuing its cleaning of the sanitary sewer system beginning tomorrow, April 15th. The scheduled streets that will have the sanitary lines cleansed will be the100 block of Plainfield Road to Main and West Russell to Center and all of Railroad Street. Unfortunately, the power of the machine used to clean the Village’s infrastructure can create air infiltrating into homes that do not have their sewer plumbing properly vented causing bubbling of water in sinks, drains and toilets. As a precaution, please consider covering your sinks and drains with a towel. Toilets should also have a towel placed over the opening and then have the lid closed over the towel to hold it in place. All are encouraged to take these precautions, but only those homes without proper ventilation have the potential to be impacted.

Joint News Release
Coshocton/West Lafayette Water agreement
Monday Feb. 25, 2019
Coshocton Mayor Steve Mercer and West Lafayette Mayor Steve Bordenkircher are very pleased to announce that a tentative agreement has been reached for the Village to purchase water from Coshocton. After the November vote by Village residents and only several months of negotiating, both sides have agreed on the terms and will be presenting to their respective councils on Monday night for first readings. A total of three readings are required with a final majority vote to pass. The public is encouraged to attend the meetings and offer comment or call your local Mayor's office.
The Ohio EPA has been a leading proponent of this regionalization project and providing substantial funding that is making this long considered partnership possible.
If approved, the tentative schedule is for all funding applications to be finalized this year along with the engineer's drawings. Groundbreaking early next year should mean the conversion to city water will occur later in 2020.
