Inframark Secures Renewal, Scope Expansion with Ebensburg, Pa.

Three-year contract covers both the wastewater and water plants, adding significant benefits.

Horsham, Pa., December 4, 2019 – Inframark, LLC, is pleased to announce that the Borough of Ebensburg, Pa., has awarded the company a three-year renewal to continue operating, maintaining, and managing its 2 million gallons per day (MGD) wastewater treatment plant (WWTP). The Borough also has expanded the scope of our partnership to include its 1.2 MGD water treatment plant (WTP). The new contract, which is the fifth renewal Inframark has received from the Borough, is effective February 1, 2020. Inframark currently serves 12 clients in Pennsylvania, including Johnstown, Downingtown, Lititz, Boyertown, and Bristol Township.

Inframark has been operating the Borough’s WWTP for nearly 16 years. Contract operations at the WTP add several benefits for the Borough — implementation of asset management and data management programs as well as hiring existing staff — all at a savings over the current Borough’s budget.

“Water treatment and sewage treatment are the two most important services that Ebensburg Borough provides,” said Borough Manager Daniel Penatzer. “Inframark has operated our sewage treatment plant in such a professional manner since 2004 that it made sense to also entrust them with the operation of our water treatment plant.”

“We are thrilled that Ebensburg has not only renewed our contract for wastewater treatment but also has entrusted us with their water treatment plant,” said Inframark President and CEO Stephane Bouvier. “We look forward to continuing our long and mutually beneficial partnership with the Borough and its residents.”

Due to a loss of pressure in the City of Houston caused by a power outage, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required that the following MUDs, City of Hilshire Village Harris County MUD 182 Harris County MUD 372 Harris County MUD 420 be notified to boil their water prior to consumption (e.g., washing hands/face, brushing teeth, drinking, etc) because your MUD receives water directly from the City of Houston. Children, seniors, and persons with weakened immune systems are particularly vulnerable to harmful bacteria, and all customers should follow these directions). To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and ice making should be boiled and cooled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes. The water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes. In lieu of boiling, individuals may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source for drinking water or human consumption purposes. When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, you will be notified that the water is safe for drinking water or human consumption purposes.
