Booster Station & Transmission Line Improvements

About The Project

Various booster station and watermain improvements projects are needed throughout the water system to meet future demands and increase system reliability.


  • Connects areas (within Greene County) currently served by Montgomery County and Dayton to the GCSED water system
  • Reduces system operating costs
  • Eliminates gaps in the water distribution network to increase system reliability
  • Increases pump station capacity to meet future demands

Impacts to customers

Residents may experience some localized construction traffic near the project sites. Construction of all water main improvements will occur entirely within road rights-of-way and limited interruption of water service is anticipated.

Will my water service be disrupted?

GCSED will provide 48-hour advance notice for any planned service interruption and will work to minimize the length of water shutdowns required to install new water mains. Water service may be disrupted for 4-6 hours or longer if unforeseen issues arise.

Will my water pressure change as a result of this work?

My water is discolored and/or I have reduced water pressure. What should I do?

Occasionally, work can dislodge sediment in the distribution system that causes discoloration or reduced pressure. Although the water is safe to drink, please avoid drinking if it is discolored. We recommend that you run cold water through your kitchen or bathtub faucet until it is clear (this may take up to 10 to 15 minutes). If this does not resolve the issue, call GCSED at 937-562-7450 for further assistance.

What are work hours for the construction crew?

Typical work hours will be 7 AM to 4 PM, Monday to Friday. Weekend work is not anticipated, but impacted residences and businesses will be notified if special conditions require weekend work. During emergency events, work will continue until the emergency is resolved. Typically, construction work completed during a normal eight-hour shift will be backfilled (covered) and ready for traffic by the end of the shift. Open trenches will be covered by large metal plates secured in place with an asphalt mixture.

Can I park my car on the street?

Unless there is a no parking sign posted, you may park your vehicle on the street as you would under normal legal circumstances.

Will I be able to get water once a line is installed in my frontage?

A curb stop will be installed with the project. If a resident wishes to tap into the mainline, the resident will need a meter pit and water line installed at the residence and pay a tap in fee. Please contact our project management team for more information at 937-562-7461.
