DEP Permits Issued for Authority Projects


February 14, 2019

Stiffler McGraw engineer John Clabaugh reported to the Williamsburg Municipal Authority that all state Dept. of Environmental Protection objections from last month have been addressed and all permits were issued for the upcoming municipal authority projects.

Clabaugh, of Stiffler McGraw, of Hollidaysburg, made the reporting during the authority’s Feb. 5 meeting.

With all those issued permits in hand, Clabaugh said that the authority is ready to submit the projects for funding during the Pennvest meeting on April 17. Pennvest is a state agency that serves the communities and citizens of Pennsylvania by funding sewer, storm water and drinking water projects throughout the commonwealth.

The authority discussed the talks with Catharine Township about the Act 537 Plan which Catharine is in the beginning stages of.

The purpose of the DEP sewage facilities program is to implement the Pennsylvania Sewage Facilities Act (Act 537) in order to help address existing sewage disposal needs, and to help prevent future problems through the proper planning, permitting and design of all types of sewage facilities.

Williamsburg Borough Manager Joe Lansberry was scheduled to have a meeting with Catharine Township’s engineering firm early in February to begin talking and perhaps plan a route for sewer service to the Ganister area.

Authority Boardmember David Myers made a motion to pay the Stiffler McGraw invoice through the authority’s line of credit with Stan Grove seconding. The motion passed.
