To the news that after more than a decade, Rising Sun is preparing to officially end its building moratorium Nov. 3. In place since 2006 due to the town’s obsolete infrastructure and water and wastewater treatment facilities, the county’s northernmost town embarked upon a years-long journey to upgrade its components. At times that journey was acrimonious, but now on the other side of it, Rising Sun is set up for a new future. Having spent $14 million to replace its lagoon system with an orbal ditch waste- w a t e r treatment plant, Rising Sun is now nearing completion on the $10 million project to connect to Chester Water Authority. The town needs about 275,000 gallons per day to meet current demand, but can draught up to 1 million gallons per day to meet future customer needs as they arrive. Town officials expect to become water suppliers to outlying areas, with the hope that the availability will attract new businesses and jobs to Rising Sun and the surrounding communities. With renewed interest in building there, we hope that the end of the town’s moratorium is just its beginning.
