201 Facility Planning Areas and Wastewater Treatment Planning Prescriptions
The 201 Facility Planning Areas (FPA) are demarcated areas in which current and/or future wastewater is accounted for either within a designated wastewater treatment facility's service area or via a home sewage treatment system. Eastgate's 208 Planning Area includes 18 FPAs: 7 serving Mahoning County, 9 serving Trumbull County, and two serving both Mahoning and Trumbull Counties. The Ohio EPA uses the existing 201 Facility Plans as a guide to issue documents such as Permits-to-Install (PTI's) for sanitary sewer extension projects and National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits issued for all discharges to waters of the State.
The Alliance 201 Facility Planning Area is a part of the Northeast Ohio Four County Regional Planning and Development Organization’s (NEFCO) water quality planning region. The four-county area includes Portage, Summit, Stark and Wayne Counties. As part of a cooperative sanitary sewer agreement between the Mahoning County Sanitary Engineer and the City of Alliance, the Alliance 201 FPA was extended into Smith Township, southwestern Mahoning County. Mahoning County’s Wastewater Treatment Planning Prescriptions apply to the Mahoning County portion of the Alliance 201FPA.
