PVSC: Damaged sewage plant fully back ‘soon’

The head of the Passaic Valley Sewerage Commission says the agency’s massive wastewater treatment plant suffered historic damage from Superstorm Sandy but that repairs are progressing and the plant could be fully operational soon.  Executive director Mike DeFrancisci didn’t give a specific timetable.  Since a few days after the storm, the plant has been releasing about 240 million gallons per day of partially treated wastewater into New York Harbor.
