Reliable - Local - Yours
Because our employees are local, our service response time during outages is generally less than that of other utilities. We have a locally sited diesel peak shaving generator station that we can use in backup mode in the event that our purchased power supply is interrupted.
Public Power means local control and accountability. You can contact someone in our town about service concerns.
Rates, Policies, and Procedures are determined right here in our community, not in some far away Board Room.
Seville is one of Ohio's eighty-five non-profit Public Power Systems. We currently service electric to 1876 customers and provide electricity to all Village Street Lights, Village Buildings, Water Plant, Wastewater Treatment Plant, and Ball-Field Lighting at no charge.
We currently supply water to 1174 customers.
Our water supply is provided by two wells located on Eby Road, south of the Village, near the Wayne/Medina County Line.
Our well field is capable of pumping 750,000 gallons per day. Currently our average usage is less than 400,000 gallons per day.
Our Water Treatment Plant went into operation in May of 2006. Along with adding chlorine to the water, a sand filter was installed to remove iron and arsenic particles. The water also goes through a water softener.
The Board of Public Affairs Wastewater Treatment Plant is a sequencing batch reactor plant. When it was built in 1989, it was one of ten of its type in this part of the country. The plant does an excellent job in treating the Sanitary Sewer to help keep our environment clean.
We also charge our customers a flat fee of $6.00 per month for Storm Sewers. This allows the Board of Public Affairs to maintain and rebuild the Village Storm Sewer System as needed.
