WEEDVILLE - The Jay Township Sewer Authority claims that the township's water plant has discharged settled solids in the form of backwash wastewater, causing damage to the sewage treatment plant facility. As a result, the sewer authority is requesting the Jay Township Water Authority physically separate the backwash wastewater facilities from the sanitary sewer system.
The issue came to a head at a recent meeting of the Jay Township Board of Supervisors, with opponents of the request disputing the sewer authority's claims and arguing the request would lead to increased costs for sewer authority customers.
