BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. -- A revised draft permit to build the sewer plant for the Coolfont Village subdivision was submitted to the state Department of Environmental Protection by Berkeley Springs Development, a subsidiary of the Carl M. Freeman Cos.
Bob Marggraf, Freeman's West Virginia vice president and general manager, said the permit was revised because the plant's design must be built to accommodate all 1,200 homes.
"It is not designed to be built in phases," he said.
He said the company revised and resubmitted the permit application because "we need a permit for the entire waste load and a permit to build the entire plant at once and not in phases," Marggraf said.
Matt Sweeney, a supervisor in the DEP permitting section, said the application was originally approved in a phased approach. He said "they then requested a permit to build it all at once."
