CSO Information

Wastewater Department Combined Sewer Overflow Information

Some of the sewers in Angola are "combined." Combined sewers collect both sanitary waste and storm water in wet weather. These combined sewers designed and constructed several years ago result in the bypass of untreated sewage during heavy rains or excessive snowmelt. This untreated sewage ends up downstream in the watershed helping to contribute to water quality problems in the Pigeon Creek Watershed. Over the past decade, Angola has spent around $12 million to reduce Combined Sewer Overflows (CSO's) and in fact has reduced the frequency and duration of the bypass of sewage to the H.D. Wood Ditch by 96%. If you are interested in notification of CSO events, please request by email at cwilliams@angolain.org
