The Leetonia Water System has been purchasing its water supply from the City of Salem since 2008 and provides water to approximately 760 service connections. The village owns & maintains its own water distribution system consisting of one 50,000 gallon elevated water storage tank, one 450,000 gallon ground level covered storage reservoir, 6 pressure reducing stations & 2 master meters. There are approximately 20.37 miles of water lines within the village, 172 hydrants and 217 main line valves throughout the system.

Water Quality

The Village of Leetonia routinely tests a minimum of twice per month for total coliform bacteria in the water distribution system.

In 2015, a total trihalomethane (TTHM) removal system was added to the in-ground storage reservoir to aid in the removal of TTHMs before entering the distribution system. We currently monitor TTHM and HAA5 (total haloacetic acids) 4 times per year at points designated by the Ohio EPA. Since the removal system was installed, we have not had any TTHM violations.

Lead sampling is currently conducted once per year at 10 locations at specified sites which meet Ohio EPA requirements throughout the village.

Hydrant Flushing

Hydrant flushing is conducted once per year during warm weather months. Hydrants are flushed to clean the water lines and ensure that hydrants are working properly. Hydrant flushing typically takes 15 minutes to up to an hour per hydrant so the course of work may last several weeks. Water discoloration and low water pressure may occur during this time.


Leetonia public sewer utility currently serves around 702 connections through 10.5 miles of gravity collection mains. There are 207 manholes and two lift stations in the village. Wastewater is treated through an extended aeration process with tertiary treatment and final discharge to the East Branch of the Middle Fork of Little Beaver Creek.

In addition:

Water discoloration & pressure complaints as well as sewer issues should be directed to the Superintendent of Utilities at 330-427-8087.
