Bids on sewage plant work may go out in March

January 14, 1998

Taneytown officials hope to advertise in March for bids to improve and expand the city's sewage treatment plant.

Dennis Michael of CDM Engineering has submitted plans and specifications for the $6.1 million project to the state Department of the Environment.

A county government review is scheduled this week.

Expansion of the plant's capacity from 700,000 gallons to 1.1 million gallons a day will be financed through a $1.6 million state grant and $4.5 million in state loans.

If the city obtains additional grants, the state loan would be reduced. Construction could begin in June.

The 40-year-old plant has violated state standards for nutrients discharged in treated sewage. City officials say it must be expanded to accommodate growth.

Fire

Taneytown: Firefighters responded at 9: 48 p.m. Monday to an auto fire on York Street at Record Lane. Units were out 11 minutes.
