Palmerton's brand new $10 million wastewater treatment plant likely won't be finished until the end of the year.
Borough Manager Rodger Danielson notified borough council on Thursday that the project's completion date has been moved back.
"It appears to be typical delivery delays, construction delays to come up, things that happen during construction," Danielson said. "Unforeseen things really; it's primarily being looked at as a delay in some material delivery."
Previously, Danielson said final completion was scheduled for late-November, possibly into December.
