Steubenville City Council passed an ordinance authorizing City Manager James Mavromatis to enter an agreement with H-D-R Engineering Incorporated to start on the replacement of the city’s water valves.

Utility Director Chuck Murphy has seen that this project has been in the making for a long time and is thrilled to see it taking shape.

305 of the city’s 1,450 water valves will be replaced within the next two years and all of the valves will be made operational within the next 10 years to be in line with Ohio EPA Standards.
