"This establishment is a result of the collaboration of twelve Townships, three Villages and the Lorain County Commissioners. Its concept goes back to mid 1993 when the needs of central wastewater collection and treatment systems were perceived to be greater than ever. This isn’t the first time central sewer service has been discussed but rather with the sheer determination liken to the success of the Rural Lorain County Water Authority, this group of Township Trustees and Village Officials recognized the wisdom of pursuing a long term plan for this much needed utility in the rural unincorporated areas of Lorain County."
