WATER TREATMENT & DISTRIBUTION
Ottoville Village water comes from 2 wells pumped through an aerator, chlorinated and stored in clear wells till needed. The water is then pumped through sand pressure filters and out to the Village.
There are two elevated water storage tanks within the Village limits. One in the middle of the Village holds 100,000 gallons of water, and one in the industrial park holds 200,000 gallons of water.
In 1982 the Village built the water plant and since has had two upgrades. This plant pumps approximately 134,000 gallons of water every day. Ottoville water is tested daily to make sure the Village is safely meeting the environmental protection agency’s quality standards for drinking water.
