Village Sign 1

The Village of Danville is known as “The Gateway to Amish Country”. We are the trailhead/terminus for both the Kokosing Gap Trail and the Mohican Valley Trail that extends to the Bridge of Dreams in Brinkhaven.

Located on U.S. 62, 15 miles northeast of Mount Vernon, Danville is a thriving community of 1,100 residents with homegrown pride and down home values. Home of the second oldest Catholic parish in Ohio, St. Luke Catholic Church, Danville’s roots run deep. The original Danville was laid out by George Sapp, Sr. and Robert Waddell in 1813 and was named for Daniel Sapp, a soldier in the War of 1812. Danville later merged with 2 smaller villages, Rosstown (Rossville) and Buckeye City, to create the village that is seen today.

Small stores to shop and places to eat are plentiful in the community and we offer many activities for visitors to our village. Come and enjoy the small town atmosphere that our village has to offer.

In June, the Danville-Howard Turkey Festival is held at the Danville Community Park with games, rides, contests, and food dominate the three-day event where friends and family find time to get back to the basics of life.

While in Danville, take advantage of the two trails available. If you are a horse enthusiast, be sure to bring your horse and travel the Mohican Valley Trail, a trail open to any non-motorized mode of transportation. This trail runs from Danville to Holmes County. Runners, bikers, and walkers enjoy the scenery of the Kokosing Gap Trail that runs from Danville to Mount Vernon.

Wastewater Treatment Facility Upgrades and

Sanitary Sewer Trenchless Rehabilitation

Request for Public Comment

May 31, 2017


Description of Projects:


WWTF Upgrades - Project consists of replacing the existing bar screen with a new bar screen and grinding equipment, installing new Ultra-Violet (UV) Disinfection Equipment, new Blowers, new Aeration Equipment, and Installing a Submerged Attached Growth Reactor (SAGR) in two of the treatment plant’s existing lagoons. The purpose of the work is to provide enhanced nutrient reduction with modern equipment and treatment methodologies ensuring years of continuous wastewater treatment while reducing maintenance costs to the community. The goal is to minimize the potential for violations to the NPDES Permit and to meet operational criteria for proper treatment of wastewater.


Sanitary Sewer Trenchless Rehabilitation - The project consists of installing Cured-In-place-piping (CIPP), and manhole rehabilitation, which would eliminate the need for extensive excavation and disturbance to the community. The purpose of the work is to reduce the amount of storm water that is entering the sanitary sewer system through the existing sanitary sewer pipes identified as having multiple issues with inflow and infiltration. The goal is to reduce the amount of wet weather related flow that is currently being sent to the Wastewater Treatment Plant.


Timing: Funding should become available in June or July of 2017 . Construction work is estimated to begin in July 2017, and be completed by February 2018.


Costs: Estimated construction costs of the project are $2,660,400.00, the monies for the project will be in the form of a 0% interest, 20-year loan through the OWPCLF Program.


Based on the projected revenues and expenses in the wastewater utility enterprise funds, the existing rate structure is insufficient to cover the debt for the improvements. As such, it was necessary to increase the sanitary sewer rates to pay for the improvements described above and the Village has subsequently passed legislation to ensure revenue will be available for the life of the loan to sufficiently cover the debt incurred.
