Oregon buys cameras to investigate flooding
Written by Kelly Kaczala

Oregon City Council last week approved the purchase of a new camera system that will be used to inspect sewer and water lines. The equipment will help the city in its investigation of inflow and infiltration (I&I) issues to reduce or eliminate excessive storm water from the wastewater collection system.
 
Significant rainfall sparked I&I issues a few years ago when several residents, particularly in the Wheeling trunk sewer service area, had complained about flooded basements. Flow monitoring, video detection and smoke testing have also been used to help identify I&I.
 
The State of Ohio Purchasing Contract for the equipment has been awarded to Jack Doheny Supplies, Ohio, Inc., for $188,342.50. The cost includes the installation of the camera in the 2011 Sprinter CCTV Van, which was purchased last year and is currently being outfitted at Jack Doheny Supplies.
 
The equipment, called an IBAK Closed Circuit Televising (CCTV) system, consists of two cameras, according to Public Service Director Paul Roman.

 
The Docks purchase: Chinese investors impressed by Toledo’s cultural ops

On cable television’s first episode of TV Land’s “Hot in Cleveland,” actor Betty White mockingly referred to Toledo as “The Paris of Ohio.”

If one were to ask Chinese investors representing Dashing Pacific Group, LLC what attracted them to Toledo, they might tell you that the veteran actor’s lines were not far from the truth.

The Chinese development firm has signed an agreement to purchase The Docks riverfront restaurant complex in East Toledo’s International Park.

Toledo Deputy Mayor Dean Monske, a former director of the Oregon Economic Development Foundation, and Perrysburg real estate investor Scott Prephan, who represents the Chinese company, say Toledo’s cultural opportunities have impressed the Chinese.

 
Christmas trees to provide shelter for fish in lake

The City of Northwood dropped 35 Christmas trees into the lake at Ranger Park last week to provide shelter to smaller fish from predators.
 
Mayor Mark Stoner said the city had wanted to do it last year, but decided against it.
 
“I don’t think the ice was safe to be on,” he said.
 
The streets department, he said, bore holes along the periphery of the lake where it is approximately eight feet deep to put in the trees. A cement block is attached to each tree. As the ice melts, the trees will sink in the water.
 
The trees are expected to last for about two years before disintegrating.
