'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

A delay in shipping chemicals might leave some Delmont residents in a stinky situation.

Officials are warning residents in the Monticello housing plan that the chemicals used to treat sewage at the Cramer Pump Station haven't been added recently, and sewer-gas odor could return to the neighborhood.

The pump station is under renovation, councilman Randy Cupps said, and contractors were awaiting a chemical treatment to add to the waste in the new pumps.

Two years ago, borough officials began adding chemicals to waste moving through the pump station after Monticello Drive residents complained about sewer-gas smells permeating their homes and yards.

Cupps said that any resident smelling the odors should let borough officials know.
