Long Term Control Plan (LTCP)

LTCP (Long Term Control Plan)

What is the LTCP?

As per the Clean Water Act of 1972, the City of Huntington, by IDEM & the EPA, has been given an unfunded mandate to control the amount of raw sewage that is deposited into the local streams and lakes via Combined Sewer Overflows (CSO). The City is under a State Judicial Agreement (SJA) to develop a LTCP that will address and or reduce the occurrences that these sewers overflow.


The City hired Bonar Group, based in Fort Wayne, to determine the best course of action to achieve the guidelines set forth by IDEM and the EPA. Being proactive, the City has been separating sewers for many years. These separation projects have reduced the overall cost of the LTCP greatly and have saved taxpayers millions of dollars in future construction and interest costs. Though separation of sewers will solve many problems, such as reducing the frequency and volume of combined sewer overflows, it will not completely solve the problem.


Before submitting the final LTCP to IDEM and the EPA the City is having a Public Meeting to allow for the public to provide imput and to discuss the following:

  • Background on the LTCP and the laws regulating
  • The proposed alternatives developed to address the combined sewer overflow issues
  • The cost of the proposed plan & funding sources
  • Corresponding Sewer Rates with reflection to the projects within the plan
