Wastewater Authority Plans to Upgrade Pennsylvania Sewage Plant

Sept. 18 (Bloomberg) -- An eastern Pennsylvania wastewater authority plans to spend half of an estimated $34 million in project funds to reduce phosphate and nitrogen discharges of treated sewage that makes its way to the Chesapeake Bay.

The Abington regional wastewater authority plans to upgrade and expand the sewage treatment plant that serves the Clarks Summit area to comply with the Environmental Protection Agency’s mandate to help curb discharges in the Chesapeake Bay watershed that can harm plants and wildlife.

Bids to build the project in phases may come as early as Nov. 1 for construction that under EPA requirements must be finished by October 2015.
