Glendon Wrapping Up Sewer Project
Borough gets permission from Easton to install sewage treatment facility.
After 10 years, Glendon is on its way to having all of its residents hooked up to a sewer system.
The Easton Zoning Hearing Board Monday night approved Glendon's plan to install an underground sanitary sewer pump station along Glendon Avenue.
Borough engineer Justin Coyle told the board the installation will get 20-25 homes in Gledon connected to the sewer system, the final phase of a decade-old project. Coyle said the residents have "substandard" conditions now, using old septic systems.
"They have to watch when they do their laundry, because the system is antiquated," he said.
Although the project benefits Glendon, the borough needed permission from Easton's planners and zoners because the pumping station itself is on city property, said city planning director Becky Bradley.
Bradley testified before the zoning board Monday, saying the project ultimately helps the city by avoiding adverse environmental conditions that would affect Easton as well as Glendon.
