An ordinance regulating the discharge of pollutants into the sanitary-sewer system is up for adoption by Malvern Borough Council. During a work session Tuesday, borough manager Richard DiPrimio said that the ordinance, which is to be voted on at the regular council meeting next Tuesday, is scheduled to be adopted by all the municipalities served by the Valley Forge Sewage Authority. The ordinance, drawn up to comply with new U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regulations, would prohibit industries from discharging any material into the sanitary-sewer system that would alter the chemistry of the water when it is treated at the wastewater-treatment plant.

Borough manager Donald Greenleaf told the council at a work session on Wednesday that the biological oxygen demand - an indicator of the concentration of the sewage - measured in the line about three weeks ago was up to 1,800...

The Newtown Township Board of Supervisors has delayed action on a developer's request to include a direct-stream discharge system in the township's sewage facilities plan, pending an opinion from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service regarding on-site wetlands. The Kravitz Development Co. of West Chester wants to develop the lot at 24 Paper Mill Rd. into a single-family dwelling. Because of the lot's distance from a public sewer line and because of environmental constraints, such as steep slopes, Kravitz has proposed emptying treated effluent directly into Darby Creek.

The Newlin Township Board of Supervisors broke with tradition this week and agreed to allow the prospective owners of the Roland Harris estate on Star Gazer Road to discharge treated sewage into a tributary of the west branch of the Brandywine Creek. It will be only the third such system allowed in the township, according to Supervisor Robert Pearson, who led Monday's meeting in the absence of board Chairman Debbie Jefferis. Pearson said the request for a stream-discharge system resulted from a real estate evaluation of the current septic system.

It's no secret that the fish swimming in the Delaware River carry some pretty odd chemicals in their bodies - just look at the signs that dot the shoreline warning fishermen not to eat them. The source of the pollutants, however, is as murky as the water: Is it sewage treatment plants? A local company, such as Scott Paper? The Naval Shipyard in Philadelphia? The abandoned Superfund sites that line parts of the river? This spring, in a first attempt to pinpoint the bigger polluters, companies and towns that discharge large amounts of water into the Delaware River in four states are being ordered to test what they discharge.

The Rhone Poulenc Basic Chemical Co. plant in Morrisville will be allowed to discharge a higher concentration of a toxic chemical into the borough's water-treatment system than is now permitted under a plan approved Monday by the Borough Council. With three members absent and one abstaining, the council voted, 4-0, to increase the permissible discharge of phenolic compounds into the system. The borough's wastewater is treated at a plant on South Pennsylvania Avenue and discharged into the Delaware River.

In a move that has riled environmentalists from Pottstown to Wilmington, the Downington Area Regional Authority is proposing to expand its plant and discharge more treated sewage into the Brandywine Creek in Chester County. Currently, the authority, whose service area covers about 50 square miles around Exton, has a capacity of 7 million gallons daily. But it takes in 4 million gallons, which are treated and discharged into the creek - a popular retreat for canoeists. Under the authority proposal, which is scheduled to be unveiled at a 7:30 meeting tonight in the Uwchlin Township building, the capacity would be increased by 1.8 million to 8.8 million gallons a day to handle growth over the next 20 years.

GROTON, Conn. - A former submarine commander who faked his death to end an extramarital affair should be honorably discharged from the Navy, a panel of officers recommended Friday after a daylong hearing in which the officer said he accepted "full and total accountability" for his behavior. Cmdr. Michael P. Ward II, a married 43-year-old, sent his mistress in Virginia an e-mail in July posing as a fictitious coworker named Bob and saying Ward had died unexpectedly. Ward was relieved of his duties aboard the USS Pittsburgh in August a week after he'd taken command and has received a letter of reprimand for adultery and other military violations.

RAYMOND SHOWERS was such a fervent music fan that he would play a long concert of hits from the 1950s to the present while his listeners tried to be patient. "You had to have the patience of Job," his family said. "He had the most impressive record collection in the world. " One of his favorite musicians was the late Curtis Mayfield, R&B, soul and funk singer and composer, and his group, the Impressions. But Ray didn't just spin records. He loved to sing, compose and play the guitar and piano.

The souvenirs Tony DiNardo saved from the war were parceled into five lockboxes he stashed around his South Philadelphia rowhouse. This week, when those chests were pried open, DiNardo's family learned a little more about a life he'd only hinted at. He kept a copy of the Evening Bulletin from Dec. 8, 1941, with its banner headline, "Bombers Attack Hawaii Twice," and its bookend, the victory edition from nearly four years later that trumpeted, "The...

OMAHA, Neb. - The Air Force said yesterday that it was discharging a hero of the so-called birther movement who refused to report to duty in Germany for a few days earlier this month because he doubts President Obama's citizenship. Staff Sgt. Daryn Moran expects to be discharged within the next week. Although the 41-year-old Nebraska man refused to report to duty and had called for Obama's arrest in statements on websites, several other things contributed to his discharge, including his opposition to Obama's decision to allow gays to serve openly in the military.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on Tuesday proposed a $157,500 fine against Swamp Angel Energy L.L.C., of Wichita, Kan., for alleged discharges of more than 228,000 gallons of oil brine into wells in the Allegheny National Forest in 2007. The EPA's Philadelphia office alleges Swamp Angel violated the federal Safe Drinking Water Act by injecting oil wastewater into depleted production wells that were not licensed for disposal. Two company employees were sentenced last year to home detention, probation and fines in connection with the dumping.

The stringent New York City gun laws that Karen Heller extols did not prevent former pro football player Plaxico Burress from carrying his firearm, and so did not serve as any sort of deterrent ("Burress as another jailbird? Why not?," June 7). Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey, whom Heller quotes, is right: "We have . . . no shortage of people who are willing to use guns. " Since such people are not deterred by gun laws, why praise those "strict" gun laws? Their only effect is to leave law-abiding citizens defenseless against criminals.

In the latest round in the bitterly contested deepening of the Delaware River shipping channel, New Jersey and environmental groups criticized the Army Corps of Engineers for pumping sediments from the project into an area that, after a dike broke, caused a discharge into New Jersey wetlands and waters. The 102.5-mile deepening from 40 feet to 45 feet began March 1 in a 12-mile stretch near Wilmington. Under order of a federal judge in Delaware, the dredge material was to be taken to the Army Corps' Killcohook disposal facility, part of which lies in Delaware territory.
