Public Notice ACT 537 Plan Special Study

PUBLIC NOTICE

Public Notice is hereby given that Warminster Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, proposes to adopt a 537 Plan Special Study for the temporary shutdown and subsequent diversion of the NAWC Sewage Treatment Plant flows to the Log College Sewage Treatment Plant. The 537 Plan Special Study has been prepared by the Warminster Municipal Authority on behalf of Warminster Township. The Warminster Municipal Authority owns, maintains, and operates both the NAWC and Log College Sewage Treatment Plants.

The Special Study provides the background and evaluation of the plan to temporarily divert wastewater flows from the NAWC STP to the Log College STP. This diversion will be initially for a 5-year term and will be subject to annual evaluations. The diversion is sought in order to eliminate the inefficient use of the NAWC STP. Currently, only 10% of the facility’s capacity is being utilized. Flows are 118,000 gallons per day, and the capacity is 1.2 million gallons per day. The Log College STP is currently at 77% of capacity, with flows of 6.33 million gallons per day, and capacity of 8.18 million gallons per day. There is, therefore, excess capacity available at the Log College STP to temporarily accept the diverted flows from the NAWC STP.

A copy of the Act 537 Plan Special Study can be reviewed at the Warminster Township municipal offices at 401 Gibson Avenue, Warminster, PA 18974, during normal business hours from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Below are the following documents of the study:

Written comments from the public regarding the Act 537 Plan Special Study will be received by Warminster Township at the above address for 30 calendar days following the date of publication for this notice. All comments should be submitted to the attention of Steven M. Wiesner, Interim Township Manager. This Act 537 Plan Special Study will become a part of Warminster Township’s official Act 537 Sewage Facilities Plan.
