Delmont's Raw Sewage Discharges into Beaver Run
This website is dedicated to sharing information about Delmont Borough's failing sewage system, which is discharging raw, untreated human waste and other contaminants onto private property and into the Beaver Run watershed- Westmoreland County's primary municipal water source.
The entire purpose of a sewage system is to safely contain and transport all raw sewage to the treatment facility. Delmont Borough’s sewage is escaping the system with regularity, finding its way onto private property, into the habitats of fish, birds and other wildlife, and into the community’s drinking water. This is an egregious environmental hazard.
