City Utility Operations
The City of Spring Hill's waste water is treated at a facility constructed in 2001. There are two treatment facilities:
- 0.13-MGD (million gallons per day) four-cell lagoons
- 1.25 MGD Schreiber GR extended aeration activated sludge plant
The City's waste water operators are responsible for treatment plant operations and the maintenance and repair of the sanitary sewer collection system. The collection system consists of 58.7 miles of combined gravity and force main sewer lines and eight lift stations. The lift stations are monitored through the use of a SCADA telemetry computer system that allows the City crew to remotely monitor pump functions/operations and wet well levels of the lift stations at all times.
Waste water samples are taken consistently throughout the month to determine treatment process efficiency and to ensure the City meets state and federal regulatory compliance guidelines.
The City crew operates a vac/jet truck which scours the sewer lines through high-pressure hydro-jetting to remove grease and debris that accumulate in the lines over time. These operations are conducted routinely through the City's line cleaning program and as needed throughout the year.
The City of Spring Hill provides waste water treatment services for all Spring Hill residents, including those who do not live in the Spring Hill Water District.
The City of Spring Hill purchases water from Miami County Rural Water District No. 2, which operates a water treatment facility near Hillsdale Lake. For more information on Miami County Rural Water District No. 2, visit its website.
Two water storage facilities are operated and maintained by the City. The ground storage water tank (capacity: 475,000 gallons) is located at the intersection of Allen and Washington. The elevated water tower (capacity: 500,000 gallons) is located on the south side of AGC Glass Plant, north of 207th Street.
The City also has an emergency water interconnection with Johnson County WaterOne at the corner of 207th Street and Lone Elm Road. This facility would only be used during extreme water drought or emergency water supply situations.
The City's water operators are responsible for operating, maintaining, and repairing 38.07 miles of water main pipelines, reading and updating water meters, water testing, waterline service and repairs, and responding to customer service calls.
The City of Spring Hill has more than 2,500 residential, business and industrial customers. Note that not all Spring Hill residents receive water from the City. Many of our residents are served directly by Johnson County WaterOne, Rural Water District No. 7, and Rural Water District No. 2.
