Sewerage and sewage disposal has been the single largest deterrent to growth at Indian Lake. Growth will necessitate increasing Borough involvement in keeping aging on-lot systems safe and in facilitating new approaches and community-based systems.
Our aging public water system, put in years ago due to the high density of on-lot septic systems and fears of ground-water contamination of individual wells, is becoming an increased maintenance burden and is in need of upgrades. Tank painting, line breaks, and failing/antiquated controls are ongoing examples.
The purpose of this committee is to provide focus and oversight of these needs.
