The Southwest Licking Community Water and Sewer District would like to welcome you to our official website. This website is to provide another vehicle of communication and exchange of valuable information between the District, our customers and the public.


Josh Holton, District Wastewater Operator, and the District's Wastewater Treatment Plant
were featured in the June “Treatment Plant Operator” magazine. 
A link to the article is provided below ~
the article really shows that the District and its employees are pioneering changes
to the biosolids rules and performing responsible land application methods.

Josh and everyone at the wastewater plant do an excellent job and are deserving of this recognition ~ Congratulations!

There has been much media coverage and attention paid in recent months
regarding the levels of lead in public drinking water, particularly in the Flint, Michigan water system.  And, just this week an alert was issued for customers of the
Sebring Village Water Treatment Plant, near Youngstown, Ohio. 

Here are a few facts about our drinking water:

  • Lead and copper in drinking water are primarily the result of
    old water lines in a customer's home.  In some cases,
    slightly acidic water can leach the lead and copper out of the water lines.
  • Typically, acidic source waters are from lakes and rivers. 
    Our source water is from a neutral groundwater source.
  • Our historical testing results for lead and copper, tested at consumers taps,
    have been very low.
  • Our sytem is newer than most and
    we do not have any distribution lines that contain lead or copper
  • We add an EPA approved ortho-poly phosphate to our water,
    which is a corrosion inhibitor and minimizes any leaching of metals
    from our consumers water lines.
  • Additional information regarding lead can be found
    in the "Common Water Quality Concerns" article under the "District News" tab.
  • A full report on our water quality can be found in the District's Consumer Confidence Report.  Please click on the "Water System" tab above to review these annual reports.

The District is committed to
providing quality and environmentally compliant water
to all current and future District customers.

If you have any questions or concerns about your water quality, please contact our office at 740-927-0410 or .
