Dear Village residents and visitors,
As a Marblehead Water Plant Superintendent, I would like to inform you about the recent updates to your local water plant and the water distribution system. The Board of Public Affairs has applied for and was awarded an Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (Division of Drinking and Ground Waters) grant for algae monitoring equipment. This grant has allowed us to purchase and install a data sonde to measure several perimeters of the influent waters to detect a possible algae bloom. The information collected by the data sonde is wirelessly relayed to the Great Lakes Observation System in conjunction with other Lake Erie water plants. This allows the water department to obtain real time data on the quality of the influent waters and ensure the correct treatment measures are taken in timely matter.
