Square project: Water line still in limbo

No decision has been made yet on whether the Linglestown improvement project, sometimes referred to as the square project, will include the installation of a public water line along Route 39 in the historic village section.

Lower Paxton Township officials are still working to determine how many property owners want to hook up, said John Hollenbach, general manager for United Water Pennsylvania. “It's the company's desire to make it happen, but we can't foot the whole bill,” he said.

Without a doubt, the big stumbling block to getting public water in the village is the steep price for hooking up, which would cost property owners an estimated $3,000 – $4,500 per property.

The water line would increase property values of homes and businesses, provide a reliable and monitored water source, and most importantly bring fire hydrants to the village.

Meanwhile, the improvement project tentatively will be put out to bid early this summer. With skyrocketing fuel prices, I believe there is a very good chance that bid prices will outstrip available funding for construction, possibly delaying the project.

Planned improvements include two traffic roundabouts, decorative streetlights, benches, stamped concrete sidewalks and trees.
