Hotel Ignores Requests to Repair Problems

Despite repeated requests, the Lantern Lodge, a small hotel in Jackson Township, Pennsylvania, has failed to address its stormwater problems. A local resident had complained about stormwater flooding his property, claiming that this was due to a clogged drain on the hotel’s property. A township engineer later confirmed that the storm drain does not comply with the original plans. He also discovered a break in a stormwater pipe that is causing a sinkhole in a parking lot nearby.

The hotel had 90 days to upgrade its stormwater management. The township now intends to go onto the property and make the repairs while placing a full-price lien on the property owner.
