Delaware County Coroner Rick Howell said an autopsy would be conducted. The man’s identity hasn’t been released.

Todd says there’s no immediate indications the man met with foul play.

He says three local storm drains are large enough to carry a human body into the plant. Investigators also are looking into whether the man had been in the treatment plant and somehow ended up on the conveyor belt.
