A permit application is being filed with the state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) for the sale of Kane sewer effluent to drillers of Marcellus Shale and other natural gas wells.
KLH Engineers of Pittsburgh is filing the application on behalf of the Kane Borough Sewer Authority. KLH is the consulting engineering firm for the authority, which met Monday evening at the borough building in Kane.
"This is the first step," Authority Chairman Dave Peterson said in reference to the permit application to be filed with the DEP. "We can't do anything else until we get permission."
