Amsterdam Sewer Project Sanitary Sewer System

Amsterdam, Springfield Township and Loudon Township (Carroll County)

Design work on the new sewer system for the Village of Amsterdam was completed in January of 2018. An application for a Permit to Install (PTI) from the OEPA was applied for near the end of January. Additionally, design documents were submitted to several funding agencies and the County Soil and Water Conservation District for review and comments.

In summary, the project will include the construction of about 63,000 feet of sanitary sewer lines, three sewage pump stations, and a 50,000 gallon per day sewage treatment plant. The plant will be located on property purchased by the County adjacent to the Village’s Rogers Park. The estimated cost of the project is around $9.7 million dollars, and approximately 70% of this amount will be paid for by grants from various agencies. This project will serve over 400 new customers.

The District will need to obtain approximately 100 private rights of ways for the project. Those property owners from whom a right of way will be needed will be contacted in late spring or early summer by the Water and Sewer District’s Solicitor about the purchase of the right of way. Another town-hall type of meeting will be scheduled this summer to go over details of the project and the right of way acquisition process. Due to the timing of project funding and grant allocations, the project will not be advertised for bids until December of 2018 or January of 2019. Construction is expected to commence in the spring of 2019.
