  • Yellow Springs’ new water plant is online

    Yellow Springs residents should notice changes in local tap water now that the new, long-awaited water plant is up and running, according to Village Manager Patti Bates recently.

  • New setting for water softeners

    Brown water continues to show up in areas around the village.

    With the Village of Yellow Springs’ new $7.2 million water plant now online, residents should adjust their water softeners to a new setting — 15 grains per gallon.

  • Village sidewalk projects aim for safety

    Several workers from Axis Civil Construction in Columbus poured concrete last week for a new sidewalk along the east side of Winter Street, part of the Safe Routes to School project. Shown above, crew leader Jacob Powell smoothed concrete after the pour. The project also includes a new section of sidewalk on Fairfield Pike from Fair Acres to Winter, in an effort to enhance safety for children walking to school. (Photo by Diane Chiddister)

    Two construction projects now underway in Yellow Springs aim to make the village safer for walkers.

    Construction continues at the new $7.2 million Village water plant on Jacoby Road, which broke ground in September 2016.

  • Street paving to begin this month

    Paving will soon be scheduled for several village streets.

    Crews from Jurgensen Companies construction will be paving streets in the Village in the next few weeks.

  • Meter man Upchurch on the mend

    Yellow Springs native and Village meter reader Brian Upchurch may not befriend everyone he meets, but it’s not for lack of effort on his part.

  • Brown water still present in some areas of village

    Brown water continues to show up in areas around the village.

    The new 16-inch water main is now functional, but the brown water has continued to be present in areas throughout the village. 

  • Village crew leader Johnnie Burns — Recognition for job well done

    Johnnie Burns, right, the Village of Yellow Springs superintendent of electric and water distribution, recently received a Larry Hobart “Seven Hats” award from the the American Association of Public Power, a national award honoring managers of small town utilities. Burns is shown here last Friday helping to reset an electric pole on Walnut Street knocked over by a fallen tree. At left is Kent Harding. (Photo by Diane Chiddister)

    Johnnie Burns and his crew appeared in the middle of the road on Fairfield Pike, where the water had mysteriously stopped running. They first had to figure out what the problem was — was a pipe broken or frozen? — and then had to locate the pipe. It wasn’t easy.
