Oxford continues to address concerns regarding bridge project

OXFORD – The Oxford Village Board discussed concerns regarding sewage and water movement between the east and west sides of the village last week.

Currently, the sewer line runs directly below and parallel to the Main Street bridge, which is undergoing a complete reconstruction. Plans have now been made to put the sewer line under the river as the new bridge is being built.

Wastewater Commissioner Greg Ross stated that there are potential risks having the line run below the river, such as sludge settling at the bottom, although he does not expect them.

“The village isn’t driving this train,” said Mayor Terry Stark, in reference to the county’s involvement. “But if it doesn’t work, we’ll have something saying that they’ll be back to fix it.”
