The installation of a sanitary sewer line that will carry Camp Hill Borough’s wastewater to Hampden’s Roth Lane Treatment Plant began in April 2013.
The project is the result of an agreement between Hampden and Camp Hill to provide the Borough with wastewater treatment services, which are now provided by Lemoyne.
HRI Construction Co., awarded the contract by Camp Hill, is installing the force main along portions of Walnut Street, Kohler Place, 35th Street and Lamp Post Lane to the Township pumping station where it will be conveyed to the treatment plant. The work is scheduled to be completed in August.
Camp Hill will pay for the entire force main project and has made a $9 million payment to Hampden for purchase of capacity at the plant. Hampden is using the $9 million to offset costs for ongoing upgrades to the plant and to ensure the availability of future capacity. The Township will also receive about $400,000 a quarter from Camp Hill for treating the sewage.
Residents and businesses in the area where work will be performed will be notified of the project specifics by letter. Individuals may sign up for email updates on the status of the project (on the top right corner of this page), and view project reports, on this web page.
