As part of the DOC's commitment to use clean energy and increase energy efficiency, SCI Waymart is beginning a capital project to construct a new powerhouse.

As part of the plan, the DOC has entered into an agreement with UGI for uninterruptable gas service to Waymart, which will supply fuel to the three gas boilers that will be installed in the new powerhouse.

This required an upgrade to Waymart's gas metering station as well as some valves in the main lines.
