Service is also provided to the villages of Craig Beach, New Middletown, Poland and the City of Campbell

These employees help serve more than 40,000 customers. The Sanitary Engineer generates revenue through a user charge system, so there is no funding received from the general fund of the County.

This is to achieve the utmost quality of water for the citizens of Mahoning County.
