Shipping delay might cause a stink in Delmont

Thursday, July 10, 2014, 3:42 p.m.
 

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.
