Fremont to spend millions fixing water, sewer systemBy CHAUNCEY ALCORNBLADE STAFF WRITERFREMONT - The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency yesterday approved design plans for construction in Fremont of an estimated $20 million reservoir, which the agency is requiring the city build to filter toxins from its Sandusky River drinking water supply.On top of that, Mayor Terry Overmyer said, the Ohio EPA is making the city install unnecessary separate wastewater and stormwater systems, which will drive Fremont $70 million to $90 million in debt and put a burden on businesses that will deter new businesses.Contact Chauncey Alcorn at:email@example.com 419-724-6168.
The building actually looks newer than 1891; I would have said 1910's/20's.Demolition would be ashame with its location in front of the little park (with the crazy fountain) and adjacent to the courthouse.
Dam removal might bring walleye boomSaturday, June 28, 2008D'Arcy EganPlain Dealer ColumnistFremont, Ohio- The Ballville Dam on the Sandusky River will mark its 100th birthday in 2011, and state officials hope to celebrate by removing the badly aging structure.As soon as a new reservoir is tentatively completed in 2012 to provide drinking water for the city of Fremont, replacing a sediment-filled lake behind Ballville Dam, the Sandusky River dam will not be needed. It will take awhile for the river channels behind the dam to match the channel below the dam. When that happens, spawning walleye will be able to swim many miles upriver in spring - as walleye and sturgeon did a century ago - and enjoy vast stretches of prime spawning habitat.To reach this Plain Dealer reporter:firstname.lastname@example.org, 216-999-5158
Your seeing that sort of thing all over! I do like the environmental effects that come from it! Where is this new reservoir going? Did I miss that?
