Nesquehoning to flush hydrants
Nesquehoning Borough Water Authority met with all members present. Mark Lopata, authority supervisor, said that they will begin to flush hydrants the week of Nov. 15.
The auditor will be in the office on Wednesday, Thursday,and Friday to look at the books.
The authority will continue to pay the payment to the PA Dept. of Labor and Industry as they have in the past. The price went up since last year and is now $162.78.
Authority secretary Denny Creitz wondered why some surrounding towns were flushing their hydrants when the county had the drought warning in effect.
During the residents' comments, Tom Merman, again brought up the item on metering the well water. He was told that the borough did not send out any letters to these residents yet. Merman commented, "I don't want to see this delay going on forever. There's too many things being by-passed."
