Backwater Prevention Assistance
If a property owner's basement floods during rain events, an application may be submitted to the Utility Maintenance Division to participate in a program to eliminate basement flooding caused by surcharging of the City's collection system. The City will conduct an investigation to determine if the installation of a backwater valve would correct the situation. The City may reimburse the owner up to $4,600.00 towards the cost of these plumbing changes. Application forms are available at the Administrative Office at 2100 Lagonda Avenue, Springfield, OH.
Septic System Elimination
This program is designed for those individuals within the City limits that may still have a private septic system that must hook into the City sewer system due to failure of said system. Application forms are available at the Administrative Office at 2100 Lagonda Avenue, Springfield, OH.
