The Hackensack City Council agreed Sept. 2 to continue discussions with the city of Backus on a tentative proposal for Backus to pipe sewage to Hackensack’s wastewater treatment plant.
In August Backus approached Hackensack on the idea and the council said it was willing to learn more. For some time Backus has had serious problems with its sewage treatment system. Hackensack’s facility is in good condition and is only running at one-third capacity. Mattefy Engineering has said the proposal is technically feasible. The Hackensack Council has drafted a proposal that will be forwarded to the Backus Council.
