More than a year later, nothing has changed.
In spite of our best efforts, Delmont Borough Council cannot be encouraged, or inspired, or emboldened, or roused, or cajoled, or incited, or provoked, or goaded, or embarrassed, or ridiculed into taking appropriate action to mitigate the causal factors behind its habitual discharges of raw sewage into Beaver Run: the illegal connections to the sewer system of certain property owners within the Borough that result in significant storm water inflows that swamp the system.
Delmont Borough is a community that intentionally and routinely discharges its untreated human waste into its own drinking water source.
