CENTER TWP — The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection received plans Friday for a water run-off fix at the Abie Abraham VA Health Care Clinic on Duffy Road.
Nov. 15 was Cambridge Healthcare Solutions' deadline to submit plans to the DEP detailing how it was going to correct poor water management at the clinic. The drainage correction is long sought by both the township's board of supervisors, who worry it'll disrupt downstream homes and potential nearby development, and neighboring property owners, who say it's damaging their land.
The plans arrived Friday, according to DEP spokesman Tom Decker.
David Heath, the township's engineer, described his understanding of the plans to Center Township's board of supervisors at their latest meeting. He has discussed the plans with the engineers who are designing the fix.
“They have now moved to installing an underground stormwater facility,” Heath said.
