Port Clinton Resort Agrees to Improve Sewage System
Erie Islands Resort and Marina
4495 West Darr-Hopfinger Rd
Port Clinton, OH 43452
Erie Islands Resort and Marina in Port Clinton will assess its wastewater treatment plant and collection system and complete repairs to the plant in order to resolve treatment and discharge violations identified during Ohio EPA inspections.
The plant continued to violate its permit conditions including chronic ammonia discharge violations and some bacteria violations.
The resort has until Sept. 8 to complete a report assessing the wastewater system. Any recommended repairs are to be completed by June 2013. A civil penalty in the settlement will be split equally between the Ohio Environmental Education Fund and the administration of Ohio EPA surface water programs.
