Township looks at sewer treatment options

ASHVILLE – Gallitzin Township is reviewing options for sewer treatment services as part of Act 537 requirements put in place by the state Department of Environmental Protection.

Nearby Ashville’s proposed upgrade to that borough’s plant has Josh James, project engineer for consulting firm Gwin, Dobson & Foreman, examining the feasibility of “piggybacking” waste flow from Coupon to the upgraded Ashville plant.

The initial Act 537 plan called for Coupon to construct its own treatment facility, but James said that likely won’t be possible in the township’s current budget.

“If they regionalize, it might make things a lot cheaper for everyone involved in the project,” he said.

School features art, music by students

The annual “A Night of the Arts” will begin at 5 p.m. Tuesday at St. Benedict Catholic School, 2306 Bedford St., Johnstown.

An art show featuring students in preschool through Grade 8 will be held. After the artwork is judged, winning works from each grade will be displayed in the school.

Light refreshments will be served to accompaniment by student musicians.

After the art show, “Disney’s Mulan Jr.,” a spring choral concert, will be presented at 7 by members of the school’s Genesius Youth Theatre.

The event is free and open to the public.
