A holiday surprise came a little early this year for scuba divers who go to Dutch Springs, the quarry that serves as an aqua park and diving facility. There are plans for diving to continue at the site, but there will be no waterpark. The land around the quarry in Lower Nazareth and Bethlehem townships is zoned for industrial use, and two warehouses are planned for the site. Other warehouses are nearby.

Details are not final, but developer Trammell Crow said Wednesday that talks about keeping the quarry open for diving are progressing. The latest details show that the aqua park is not in the plans.

More may be revealed at a Bethlehem Township zoning meeting Wednesday. When the warehouse plan was announced, one possibility was fencing off the quarry. That would have been a blow to the scuba community throughout the Northeast. Dutch Springs is a popular diving and training site.

Berks County gained a casino Wednesday when the Hollywood Casino Morgantown opened Wednesday. The new casino will bring visitors and jobs. Wyomissing-based Penn National owns the Caernarvon Township attraction, which covers 50,000 square feet, has 750 slot machines and 30 tables for games, a Barstool Sportsbook, along with restaurants and bars.

Another Wawa may be coming to Northampton County. The convenience store chain plans to build on Nazareth Pike in Bethlehem Township on the site of the former Leiser’s Rentals and Sales. The store would cover about 6,300 square feet and have 16 gas pumps.

Only a sketch plan has been presented to the township, leaving issues such as traffic and stormwater unresolved. The new Wawa would be just north of the intersection of Nazareth Pike (Linden Street) and Oakland Road.
