Campbell discusses proposed brine water treatment plant

Updated:

CAMPBELL, Ohio - The city of Campbell is looking for new revenue and they may be able to get it in a proposed brine water treatment plant.

On Wednesday night, council listened to public concerns before they make a decision about the facility which could be built on 15 acres of old Youngstown Sheet and Tube property.

Some residents say they are worried about possible pollution from the plant.

A company spokesperson for ESI Enviro says the business is regulated and safe.

Campbell's mayor says the plant would create 16 new jobs.

"Our main concern is the safety of our citizens and we're looking for anything that we can to enhance our revenues coming in because we are still in receivership and we've been there since 2004," said Campbell Mayor William VanSuch.

The mayor says the city could earn around $400,000 a year from the plant depending on the amount of water they treat.

Council is expected to make a decision within a month.
