July 12, 2011

JOHNSONBURG – Johnsonburg Municipal Authority member Ed Gapinski updated borough council members Monday on the status of the water sales agreement with the Hunt Marcellus Operating Company.
The agreement for the municipal authority to sell the Hunt Marcellus Operating Company up to 157,000 gallons of water per day was put on hold last month by the state Department of Environmental Protection [DEP].
"We are in trouble with DEP," Gapinski said. "We have outstanding VOCs [Violations of Compliance]. We have a control panel that should be installed at Silver Creek right now."
