Huntertown has received state approval to build a wastewater treatment plant on Hathaway Road.
The construction permit was issued Tuesday by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management. Before proceeding, Huntertown must also get an environmental permit approved by the state.
The permit from the Department of Environment Management included several conditions that must be met, including obtaining all necessary permits and zoning before construction; advance notice to the state of the start-up date; immediate corrective actions by Huntertown if pollution or nuisance conditions are created; and installing additional facilities if the proposed facility proves to be inadequate or cannot meet state and federal standards. Any changes or additions to the plan will require a modified permit.
In addition, if any construction is in a designated floodway, another permit may be required from the Department of Natural Resources before construction.
Appeal letters must be filed on or before Sept. 5 with the Office of Environmental Adjudication-Indiana Government Center North, 100 N Senate Ave., Indianapolis, IN 46204, or faxed to the OEA at 317--233-9372.
