Plans For Wastewater Treatment Plant

Officials in Lawrence Township, Clearfield County, are supporting a plan for a hydrofracturing

water treatment plant. Hydro Recovery is proposing to build the plant and has retained

engineers Herbert, Rowland and Grubic Inc. The facility would

treat the flow-back frac water. The plant would soften the water

and remove any heavy metals. It would then add clean water to

the treated water. The material would be loaded into the trucks

and taken to be used to frac more wells. The plant would process

300,000 gallons per day. There would be no discharge of water.

Leftover sludge would be hauled to a landfill. Hydro Recovery

currently has a similar plan under construction in Blossburg.
