This letter is in regards to the sewer project in Devola. I have did a lot of research the last couple of weeks, looking at minutes from commissioner meetings and other sources, and have found these facts. The sewer project has been planned for a number of years. It's not only planned for Devola, but also Oak Grove, Reno and other surrounding areas around Marietta. The reason for this is because the Washington County commissioners signed an agreement with the city of Marietta to mandate sewer connections to every home in these areas, even before there was a nitrate problem in Devola.
