County diverts waste water flow in Williamsport area
By SCOTT BUTKI / firstname.lastname@example.org
WILLIAMSPORT - Washington County has diverted the flow of waste water from a recently closed county waste water plant to one still operating, Water and Sewer Director Greg Murray said.
The Nicodemus Waste Water Treatment Plant in Williamsport closed Oct. 31, he said.
About 400,000 gallons a day of waste water that previously went to Nicodemus now goes to the Conococheague Waste Water Treatment Plant, at the 70/81 Industrial Park north of Williamsport, he said.
The plant's closure and the flow transfer were planned moves approved by the Washington County Board of Commissioners more than one year ago as the result of state mandated improvements of waste water plants.
