A look back: July 31, 1990
A working sewage treatment plant for Nesquehoning is still more than a year away.
But residents of that community will start feeling the bite of the project a lot sooner.
Each household (equivalent dwelling unit - EDU) will be charged a $200 tap-in fee, according to an announcement made at last night’s informal workshop of the town council.
Council and its engineer are preparing plans for the $5.6 million project under a mandate from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Resources. It is expected to be completed by the end of 1991.
Council said the EDU money will be used as collateral to help the town secure a low-interest state loan for the project.
