The City of Spring Hill's waste water is treated at a facility constructed in 2001. There are two treatment facilities:
0.13-MGD (million gallons per day) four-cell lagoons
1.25 MGD Schreiber GR extended aeration activated sludge plant
The City's waste water operators are responsible for treatment plant
operations and the maintenance and repair of the sanitary sewer
collection system. The collection system consists of 58.7 miles of
combined gravity and force main sewer lines and eight lift stations. The
lift stations are monitored through the use of a SCADA telemetry
computer system that allows the City crew to remotely monitor pump
functions/operations and wet well levels of the lift stations at all
Waste water samples are taken consistently throughout
the month to determine treatment process efficiency and to ensure the
City meets state and federal regulatory compliance guidelines.
The City crew operates a vac/jet truck which scours the sewer lines
through high-pressure hydro-jetting to remove grease and debris that
accumulate in the lines over time. These operations are conducted
routinely through the City's line cleaning program and as needed
throughout the year.
The City of Spring Hill provides waste
water treatment services for all Spring Hill residents, including those
who do not live in the Spring Hill Water District.
The City of Spring Hill purchases water from Miami County Rural Water District No. 2, which operates a water treatment facility near Hillsdale Lake. For more information on Miami County Rural Water District No. 2, visit its website.
Two water storage facilities are operated and maintained by the City.
The ground storage water tank (capacity: 475,000 gallons) is located at
the intersection of Allen and Washington. The elevated water tower
(capacity: 500,000 gallons) is located on the south side of AGC Glass
Plant, north of 207th Street.
The City also has an emergency
water interconnection with Johnson County WaterOne at the corner of
207th Street and Lone Elm Road. This facility would only be used during
extreme water drought or emergency water supply situations.
The City's water operators are responsible for operating, maintaining,
and repairing 38.07 miles of water main pipelines, reading and updating
water meters, water testing, waterline service and repairs, and
responding to customer service calls.
