People who live and work on Packers Island in Northumberland County, Pennsylvania  may finally be able to look forward to reliable water service. A water main that caused trouble last year is being replaced underneath the Susquehanna River bed. The $700,000 project will replace the existing main that supplies water from the Milton water treatment plant to about 130 homes and business on Packers Island.
