Upgrade Begins For Binghamton-Johnson City Sewage Plant

 

Binghamton and Johnson City’s wastewater treatment plant is finally getting a makeover. Demolition started Wednesday on an unused section of the plant. That will clear the way for a new facility that will perform the second step of the sewage treatment process. The upgrade is badly needed after a string of flawed renovation attempts dating back to the 90s, but city public works commissioner Gary Holmes says while it’s underway, the plant has no choice but to release water that’s only partially treated. “People flush their toilets every day and take showers,” Holmes says.
