Pennsylvania American Water completes $2.9m wastewater consolidation project in Clarion County

Published 01 November 2017

Pennsylvania American Water has completed a project connected the company’s Shippenville sewer mains to its Paint-Elk system and it will improve service reliability while eliminating previous environmental violations at the Shippenville Wastewater Treatment Plant.

The $2.9 million project included the installation of more than two miles of main, a new lift station and the decommissioning of the Shippenville Wastewater Treatment Plant.

“The connection of these two systems eliminates the failing Shippenville Wastewater Treatment Plant.” said Pennsylvania American Water Senior Project Manager Jed Fiscus. “This project also eliminates the need to upgrade the plant and the associated costs, while capitalizing on the existing capacity of our Paint-Elk Wastewater Treatment Plant.

"Pennsylvania American Water acquired the assets of the Shippenville Borough Wastewater System in 2015. The system provides wastewater service to approximately 600 residents, plus a number of commercial customers. The municipality was under a Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Consent Decree to build a new treatment plant prior to the acquisition by Pennsylvania American Water. The company entered into the consent decree with DEP to address the effluent violations at the Shippenville Wastewater Treatment Plant. The company acquired the wastewater assets of the Paint-Elk Joint Sewer Authority in 2014. The Paint-Elk Joint Sewer Authority provides wastewater service to approximately 1,000 residents. The system’s wastewater treatment plant has a 600,000 gallon per day capacity, which will accommodate the new Shippenville Lift Station’s projected 100,000-gallon daily average.
