NOTICE: Sand Docks Closed to Public Fishing

The Fremont Water Pollution Control Center will be undergoing a major renovation beginning in the spring of 2013 and lasting until at least the beginning of 2016.  The reason for the renovation is to increase the capacity of the Wastewater Treatment Facility from 10 million gallons per day up to 24 million gallons per day.  This increase in capacity will significantly reduce the number of combined sewer overflows from the City of Fremont’s combined sewer system resulting in improvements to the water quality of the Sandusky River and downstream environments.  Due to construction activities that will take place at the Fremont Water Pollution Control Center and to ensure public safety, public access to the popular fishing location known as the Sand Docks will be closed until further notice.  This fishing location is just to the southeast of the Fremont Water Pollution Control Center at the end of Sand Road.
