News and Events

American Water Resources Solicitation
Sidney residents may receive notices in the mail from a company called American Water Resources. (“AWR”) offering water and sewer line service coverage. The company indicates that it offers water service line coverage at a special introductory rate and that they use local, independent contractors for repair services. 

Residents of Sidney are advised that the city is not affiliated with nor can we provide a recommendation on using American Water Resources. Sidney residents are not required to sign an agreement with this company for repair services.

The Better Business Bureau recommends that consumers review the water and sewer service line coverage details to be sure they understand the conditions under which their service plan applies. Coverage details and exclusions can be obtained by calling 1.855.800.5195 or by accessing the following website:

Gas pipeline upgrades underway in Sidney
Contract crews working for Vectren Energy Delivery (Vectren) have completed replacing gas mains and service lines in Sidney for 2018 as part of the company’s pipeline replacement program, which is a multi-year program to replace about 700 miles of bare steel and cast iron pipeline infrastructure throughout Ohio. In Sidney, nearly $2.7 million will go toward retiring nearly four miles of gas main and more than 300 service lines in 2018. Since 2009, approximately 19 miles have been retired within the city. Vectren intends to retire approximately 27 miles in Sidney over the next several years. To read the entire press release click here.

Natural Gas Aggregation
Due to an enrollment issue while the natural gas aggregation program changed from Constellation to Volunteer Energy, enrollments on to the Volunteer Energy aggregation rate have been delayed one month. Residents will instead be on Vectren’s Standard Choice Offer (SCO) natural gas supply rate for their May service periods (June bill). Letters should soon be arriving from Vectren confirming Volunteer Energy as the natural gas supplier beginning with the June service period for any resident or small business who received the Volunteer Energy opt-out notice and did not opt-out of the aggregation program. If you have any questions about your enrollment status, you are encouraged to contact Volunteer Energy to confirm at 1-800-977-8374.
