Notice is hereby given that the Catharine Township Supervisors are considering adoption of a special study amendment to the Township’s Act 537 Sewage Facilities Plan. The intent of this amendment is to provide for the extension of public wastewater service to the village of Ganister. The proposed plan is to extend the existing Williamsburg Municipal Authority’s low-pressure Springfield Junction system across the Frankstown Branch of the Juniata River to serve approximately 23 homes and businesses in and around Ganister. System user rates will depend on construction project financing and the availability of grants but are currently estimated at $57/month. Each customer will be served by an individual grinder pump. The total project cost is estimated at $590,000. The Catharine Township Board of Supervisors will receive written comments on the proposed plan for a 30-day period following the publication of this notice. The proposed sewage planning module package will be available for review during regular business hours at the Township office located at 1229 Recreation Drive, Williamsburg, PA 16693, telephone (814) 832-3851. All written comments will receive a response and will be included in the final version of the planning document.
