Annual Water Report
Operation of the Cedarville University Water System (C.U.W.S.) includes provision of an adequate supply of safe water for domestic, commercial, and public use; compliance with all laws, regulations, and orders; uninterrupted operation of the water treatment plant and of the distribution system; and maintaining good relations with the Cedarville University Staff, Faculty and students as well as with the local community of Cedarville.
The Sanitary Survey Evaluation Report (S.S.E.R.) is an O.E.P.A. requirement that occurs every three years. O.P.E.A. officials inspect the well field, water plant, department records, operations in general, record of compliance with water quality standards, licensing compliance, and continuing education requirements for the operators over those past three years. They also look for the weakest or least improved component in the system and require that it is brought up to the surrounding capacity so that we have a qualified system. Our wells, filtration, pumping capacity, storage capacity, and water transmission lines must be matched to O.E.P.A. standards.
Upgrades over the last 10 years include new and improved wells, an approved Wellhead Protection Plan, improved filtration capacity due to two new iron/manganese filters installed, total repiping of the pump house, increased pumping capacity with the installation of a new high service pump, and a new 6" water line connecting the existing Wellfield to the Water Treatment Plant increasing our Raw Water supply capacity. The C.U.W.S. received an excellent rating on our two most recent inspections.
The O.E.P.A. mandates an annual Consumer Confidence Report (C.C.R.) be written and distributed for the previous year in addition to the S.S.E.R. The C.C.R. is delivered to all Cedarville University Water System customers via the Campus Today Email. The C.C.R. is also available on the University Website at the link below.
