Flow to Sewer Plant at Issue

Last night, the Pottstown Borough Authority board dealt with several issues, not the least of which was the capacity at the sewage treatment plant on Industrial Highway.

During a sudden and intense rainstorm three weeks ago, the plant received more stormwater mixed with sewage than it ever has in the past.

It resulted in an overflow and a notice of violation from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, which was subsequently rescinded.

There was also discussion about whether the system can handle the potential sewage from the proposed Sanatoga Green development proposed for Evergreen road, opposite the Limerick Outlets.

The concern is that flow from both that project and the Spring Valley housing development would all come through the Porter Road pump station, which is already near capacity.

Read all about it in the Tweets and links below. More to follow in subsequent Mercury articles.
