Orangetown sewer system gets makeoverPosted: Updated:
A multimillion-dollar renovation is under way in Orangetown in an effort to upgrade old and worn-out infrastructure.
The nearly $50 million improvement project entails replacing deteriorating equipment at the town's wastewater treatment plant and installing control systems to treat odors. In addition, a new disinfection system will be installed.
"Basically, the entire liquid train process has been upgraded as part of this project, so we have all new mechanical equipment from one end of the plant to the other for the liquid treatment process," says Ronald Delo, of Orangetown Environmental Management.
The renovation project also calls for revamping 18 of the town's pump stations. Most of the work is expected to be completed in July.
