The Environmental Protection Agency doesn't like what it's seeing from water testing in and around the village of Gomer.
The EPA sent a letter to the Allen County Sanitary Engineer's Office this week, noting that testing in the area showed that the amount of pollutants being released into some streams was too high.
The agency recently issued similar findings in West Minster and the county just wrapped up a sewer project to take care of the problem.
Sanitary Engineer Steve Kayatin says the EPA wants the commissioners' office to respond to the Gomer concerns and how they will handle any problems.
More and more towns and villages across the state may be getting similar letters from the EPA.
That's because the agency is conducting new permit testing for how much pollution can be emptied into Ohio's waterways
