UPDATE 8/28/2014 4:30 PM

The entire community of Devola could soon have a sewer system.

It's just a matter of whether that happens gradually or all at once.

The Washington County Commissioners Thursday discussed funding options for the system with a bonding consultant.

The county was ordered two years ago to provide service to the entire community.

The commission would like that to take place in phases.

The commissioners are awaiting a ruling on its plan by the Ohio EPA.

In the meantime, they're considering options to pay for the project, ranging from federal grants to selling bonds.


A huge turn out Tuesday night at the Devola fire house for an informational meeting about a sewer system.

It's a big project for Devola and big decisions need to be made.

The Washington County Commissioners say they're working with the EPA to try and slow down the process of the Devola phase two project.

People had many questions but right now commissioners say people just need to get their septic systems tested.

All of the plans and money to further the additions and expansion of the Marietta plant are still in tact.
