    • **STREAM CLEAN-UP & REMEDIATION**

      We take great pride in our treatment plant operations, and continue to work very hard to maintain efficient, quality discharge to the receiving waters. As previously identified, one complete treatment train has been re-configured to function as a 5-Stage BNR process.  The other treatment train is in the process of being re-configured to function as a 5-Stage BNR process, and is expected to be complete within the next ten days. This will return us to a full capacity, efficient BNR treatment facility. Additionally, our new wastewater treatment plant manager has started and is quickly familiarizing himself with the plant and the operations.

      We remain upset, concerned and saddened by the construction related incidents which allowed the release of plastic media into the Middle Spring Creek. We are continuing to work closely with the PA Department of Environmental Protection and the PA Fish and Boat Commission on stream remediation efforts and efficient treatment plant operations. Meetings with PADEP have been requested, and are expected to occur within the next ten days.

      We have received two Notices of Violation from PADEP, and have already provided a full, in-depth response.

      The investigation of the incidents is progressing.

      The contractor continues to maintain the additional erosion control measures at the wastewater treatment plant site. Additionally, the stream remediation efforts continue to be coordinated with input from the PA Department of Environmental Protection. Calls regarding media are being processed immediately.  The following update is provided:

      We have been informed by CURA Emergency Services of the following:
      1) Additional spot remediation will continue along Middle Spring Creek and Conodoguinet Creek, as necessary.  There have been only a few new reports of media within this area over the past week.
      2) Additional collection points (hard booms) remain in place downstream of Potato Road. These are being monitored daily.
      3) 1 Additional collection point (hard boom) remains in place in the Carlisle area. 2 have been removed with approval of PADEP over the past week. The remaining collection point is being monitored daily.
      4) Remediation efforts continued throughout last week and last weekend, with 450 gallons of additional media being captured and returned. As of Monday, (3/31/14), approximately 16,650 gallons of media had been removed from the stream channels and banks, and returned to the wastewater treatment plant site for proper disposal
      ***
      The goal is to capture and remove the media with as little impact to the stream, environment and wildlife as possible
      ***We will continue to update this site as more progress is made***
