Borough replaces storm sewer line

Last week, the borough's highway department replaced a storm sewer line on the 400 block of Locust Street. The old pipe was replaced with a new corrugated polyethylene pipe, and the trench was filled in with a load of stone.  Steel plates have been placed over the trench until asphalt can be applied. The 300 and 400 blocks of Locust are slated to be paved.



An old gnarled sewer pipe was removed.

A new corrugated polyethylene pipe was installed.

    1. No, this is not LASAs responsibility. This is storm water runoff, not the sewer system.

  2. Years ago, this work would have been contracted out to other firms. It nice to see our borough workers do the job, which saves money.

    2. This is storm water run off. Has nothing to do with LASA. They handle the sanitary sewer system. No rip off here!

  4. No gutter water goes thru the any sewage plant system. Therefore,LASA has nothing to do with storm catch basins. It goes along the water runoff from farmers fields. Water goes into streams unfiltered, LASA has no control.

  6. What is everyone's problem with LASA? No more smell on Front St and saved us a huge monthly sewer bill because a new plant was needed. Grow up & research things before blasting progress!
