Ruptured Pipe Spills Sewage Into Schuylkill River
Date:1/11/2008

HARRISBURG, Pa., Jan. 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Department of Environmental Protection is helping with efforts to repair a ruptured sewage line near Reading.

A 42-inch pipe ruptured Thursday evening between the city's 6th and Canal streets pump station and its Fritz Island wastewater treatment plant. The estimated 10 million gallons of sewage that normally travel through the pipe to the treatment plant are, temporarily, being discharged into the Schuylkill River until repairs to the line are completed.

Downstream public water suppliers have been notified and will protect the public by monitoring the quality of raw water. A bar screen is being used at the pump station to remove solids.

The City of Reading continues to experience problems in repairing the break. The discharge is on-going and DEP staff will remain on-scene. Currently, there is no time estimate for repairs to be complete.
