Chesterfield wants sewer plant in wake of rate hike
Anderson Herald Bulletin
Chesterfield residents currently pay $1. 11 per 1000 gallons. Lautz was unable to give a specific rate estimate for residents if the plant was built but said it was expected to be significantly cheaper than if the town continued its contract with Anderson. The preliminary engineering report approved Monday will allow Commonwealth Engineers to complete an environmental impact study and gather data regarding the need for the sewer system as required by the state revolving loan fund which will provide a loan for the construction of the plant. Lautz estimated that the cost of a plant that treats up to 500000 gallons of wastewater per day would be roughly $5. 3 million including all administrative and land acquisition costs. Mark and Max Abrell of the Delaware County Regional Waste District attended the meeting to discuss the possibility of Daleville joining forces with Chesterfield in the operation of the plant.

Consulting Engineers to provide design services for a wastewater treatment plant repair renovation and expansion project. In 2007 Brown and Caldwell Consulting Engineers completed a Wastewater Treatment Plant Facilities plan update for the city of Newberg and city staff developed a plan to renovate its WWTP facilities based on deficiencies identified in the plan.
Rain barrels offer partial solution to high flows at sewer plant
At the Silver Creek Village Board meeting Monday Kerri Bentkowski of the Buffalo-Niagara River Keepers and Betsy Hite of Cornell Cooperative Extension and the Chautauqua Watershed Conservancy presented rain barrels as an option to help village residents convert illegal downspout hookups into beneficial water reservoirs – easing destructive peak flows upward of four million gallons each day at the wastewater treatment plant while cutting their home water bills at the same time. In addition board members embarked on a grant application to offset costs associated with an engineering study to address current inflow and infiltration problems in the village sewer system. “Essentially (the rain barrel) is a mechanism to capture storm water runoff from your roof. If you can imagine just a downspout coming off your roof every time it rains right now it would go right in through the storm drain and down into the sewer or (into the sanitary sewer) which may cause issues” Bentkowski explained referencing a rain barrel brought to show village officials and residents.
NRC staff agrees with nuclear plant’s conclusion that drywell is safe
Asbury Park Press
conducted a three-dimensional finite element analysis of the plant’s drywell liner which Exelon committed to perform as a condition for the facility’s 20-year license renewal. It concluded that the drywell liner a critical component in the power plant’s reactor containment system is up to standards to operate for another 20 years. “The NRC staff review has found that the yster Creek drywell shell complies with American Society of Mechanical Engineers code limits for all postulated conditions” said NRC spokesman Neil A. Sheehan said on Monday.
