Due to an editing error, a story published May 1 about a White Oak borough council meeting was incorrect.
Although White Oak's wastewater is treated by Pennsylvania-American Water Co. at the McKeesport treatment plant, the sewer lines themselves are owned and maintained by the Municipal Authority of Westmoreland County, and have been for several years, according to borough manager John Palyo and Gary Lobaugh, spokesman for the water company.
The mistake was made in editing and was not the fault of the writer. I apologize for the error.
-- Jason Togyer, editor and executive director
