The Village of Moreland Hills is dedicated to protecting the health of the residents and protecting the aquatic environment of the Chagrin Valley region by operating and maintaining one Wastewater Purification Facility and nine sewage lift pump stations.


Greentree Treatment Plant, located on Greentree Road, is currently the Villages only Wastewater Purification Facility.  There is no practical way to pump this flow to other plants for treatment.  Greentree Treatment Plant has a treatment capacity of 10,000 gallons per day.  As the name implies, this plant serves Greentree Road, which is off Bentleyville Road.  The Village currently utilizes a private contractor for daily operations of this facility, who is responsible for EPA compliance and reporting.  When maintenance or repairs are required, the work is completed by the Village Service Department or an outside contractor.

Sanitary Sewer Collection System

Sewage Lift Pump Stations - The Village Service Department currently oversees the lift station operations and maintenance by performing daily checks of each of the nine stations to ensure that all equipment and backup systems are in good repair and are operating as designed to meet the EPA requirements.  The stations convey sewage through the sanitary sewer force mains in the City of Pepper Pike and the Heights Hilltop Interceptor Sewer that ultimately flows to the Easterly Wastewater Treatment Plant located near Bratenahl for final treatment by the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District (NEORSD).

The Village Engineer complete yearly televising and sewer jetting of the sanitary sewer system to identify potential problems.  When a problem is identified, the Village Engineer develop repairs specifications and advertise for repairs to be completed through a competitive bid process, after receiving approval from the Mayor and Council.



Putting the wrong materials down the drain can damage the sewer system, cause sewer backups in your home and sewer releases to the environment.  Everyone needs to be responsible for what they flush or pour down drains.


-disposable diapers

-“flushable” wipes

-feminine products

-cotton balls and swabs

-unused medications (medications can be dropped off in the Police Department lobby Rx Dropbox)

-cleaning wipes of any kind

-facial tissue

-paper towels

-bandages and bandage wrappings


Basically, the only thing you should ever flush down a toilet is human waste (urine and feces) and toilet paper.
