Supplied by PPL Electric Utilities. Unlimited power can be transmitted at 12 kV, 69 kV, and 230 kV from two existing substations, with a third under construction. The utility will place transformers on site to match the user's specifications.
CAN DO Inc. supplies quality water throughout the park in 12- and 16-inch ductile iron mains at pressures and flow rates suitable for heavy industrial use. The source of water is a series of deep wells with a backup supply by the Hazleton City Water Authority. Fire protection is aided by four one million gallon standpipes, which ride on the system.
Sanitary sewage service is provided by CAN DO Inc. Twelve-inch gravity collection lines, as well as 10-inch laterals, allow industries easy access to the system. At the lowest end of the park, CAN DO operates the park's wastewater treatment plant, which is presently sized for 1,000,000 gallons per day.
Verizon and Frontier Communications supply the industrial park with a 100% digital switching system and superior communications services, highlighted by an extensive fiber optic network. This system provides a state-of-the-art telecommunications platform for voice, data and video transmissions. The network supports SONET technology for ultra-reliable service to customers with critical requirements.
Natural gas service to the park is provided by UGI Utilities Inc. An eight-inch high-pressure main connects the Humboldt Industrial Park directly to the Transcontinental Pipeline. Normal service is provided through an eight-inch medium-pressure (50 PSI) distribution main.
CAN DO constructed and maintains the rail system in Humboldt Industrial Park. The Norfolk Southern Railroad, a Class I carrier, provides rail service to the park five days a week. The service is currently provided by the Norfolk Southern railroad company under a contract that runs through 2016. Once that contract expires, Reading and Northern Railroad, the largest privately owned railroad company in Pennsylvania that has twice been named Regional Railroad of the Year by Railway Age magazine, will replace Norfolk Southern in serving the park industries.
