Tri-Cities North Regional Wastewater Authority Treatment Plant Improvements and Expansion (Huber Heights, Vandalia, Tipp City)
Tri-Cities Wastewater serves 67k residents and thousands of businesses in Huber Heights, Vandalia and Tipp City. The areas are experiencing rapid industrial and residential growth. Tri-Cities conducted planning studies indicating need for treatment / collection improvements of > $100 mm to meet flow capacity, sanitary overflow and nutrient removal mandates. Expenses will be paid via utility rates. The communities request peer review and support for future infrastructure grant applications.

Tri-Cities has conducted third-party professional planning studies indicating the need for plant and collection system improvements of more than ~$100,000,000 to meet regulatory mandates relating to flow, sanitary sewer overflows, and nutrient removal. Expenses will be primarily financed by the participating communities (i.e., Huber Heights, Vandalia, Tipp City) through charges for service (i.e., utility rate revenues). The partner communities request peer review and support for future infrastructure grant applications. The partner communities anticipate applying for ~$15,000,000 in grant funding and self-funding ~$85,628,000 via debt service.

Tri-Cities North Regional Wastewater Authority serves 67,000 residents and thousands of businesses in the communities of Huber Heights, Vandalia, and Tipp City. All three communities are experiencing rapid industrial, commercial, and residential growth. The system currently operates at 96% of the design flow capacity of 11.2 million gallons per day. Capacity limitations within the plant and the collection system have been identified as problematic by the Miami Valley Planning Commission. Modifications to expand gallon / day capacity aligns with a direct contribution to the communities’ and the metropolitan region’s overall economic and community development goals. Tri-Cities has conducted third-party professional planning studies indicating the need for plant and collection system improvements of more than $100,000,000 to meet regulatory mandates relating to flow, sanitary sewer overflows, and nutrient removal. Reduction of sanitary sewer overflows will reduce contamination of waterways and the likelihood of downstream waterborne illness. The cost of the mandated improvements is prohibitive and too expensive to be financed by residents and businesses alone. Because of the wide-reaching impact for the region extending across Montgomery and Miami counties, the participants request confirmation of the importance of this project through the PDAC process.
