SPRINGFIELD TWP.  Allison Capoun and Donna Scoda from the Summit County Health Department presented information at the Springfield Township Board of Trustees meeting May 24 in the septic system charges.

In May of 2015, changes to the Ohio Administrative Code were made to require that no person is to operate a home sewage treatment system without a valid operation permit. The fees for the permits range from $10 to $30 annually. The goal of this program is to improve water quality in Summit County and surrounding watersheds.
