NOTICE OF PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD FOR
ACT 537 OFFICIAL SEWAGE FACILITIES PLAN UPDATE
Spring Grove Borough is hereby giving notice of the 30-day public comment period for its Official Act 537 Plan Update. The Plan Update proposes upgrade of the Borough’s Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP) to allow for stream discharge.
Spring Grove Borough is located in York County, Pennsylvania. The Planning Area for this Plan consists of Spring Grove Borough. The Borough is on the south by the West Branch of the Codorus Creek, separating it from North Codorus Township. The Borough is surrounded by Jackson Township on all other sides.
Spring Grove Borough owns, operates, and maintains approximately 14 miles of collection system. The Borough’s collection system conveys the raw sewage to the Spring Grove Borough pre-treatment (WWTP). The Borough’s WWTP is located off of East Railroad Street in the Borough.
Act 537 requires municipalities to prepare and maintain an up-to-date plan to assess current and future needs for wastewater collection, conveyance, and treatment facilities; and to evaluate alternatives to meet future demand.
To meet the projected needs of the planning area, the following upgrades to the system are recommended. The selected alternative is Alternative 1: Upgrade of the Spring Grove Borough WWTP with a Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR) to allow for stream discharge. Municipal sewage will be collected, and treated at the Spring Grove Borough WWTP and then discharged to the Codorus Creek (WWF). Construction Cost Opinion: $9,187,500. The present worth cost analysis contained in the report results in an annual cost per Equivalent Dwelling Unit (EDU) of $304.80.
The plans are available for public examination as noted below. The public is invited to review these documents and provide written comments to the individual listed below:
