Public Sewer Customers
Sewer bills are produced once a quarter based on your water meter readings, which are provided to the Township from your water utility company. Bills are always due 30 days from the bill date, and you will be assessed an automatic late fee of 10% for any bill which is paid after your due date. Residents who allow their sewer bill balance to run over 90 days late will be subject to collection.

On-Lot Disposal Systems (OLDS)
The Pennsylvania Sewage Facilities Act (Act 537 of 1966, as amended) requires local agencies, including municipalities, to provide for adequate sewage treatment. In addition, the municipality is charged with the protection of the public health by preventing the discharge of untreated or inadequately treated sewage. To this end, the Township Board of Supervisors has enacted an Ordinance to implement a sewage management program to effectively prevent and abate water pollution and hazards to the public health caused by improper treatment and disposal of sewage.
The Township has been divided into three On-Lot Sewage Management Program Districts:
- District One covers the east side of the Township, from the eastern border to Green Valley Road.
- District Two encompasses the area between Green Valley Road and North Church Road.
- District Three runs from North Church Road to the western border of the Township.
Every on-lot sewage system in the Township will be required to be inspected and every associated on-lot sewage system tank shall be pumped every three years. Documentation will be provided to the Township on the inspection and pumping activity performed. Appropriate forms for the documentation have been provided to those pumper/haulers which are registered with the Township office:

Note: You can have your system pumped as often as you want. For example, some people have their system pumped every year, but you MUST have it pumped and inspected every three (3) years
2019 will be the year for all Zone 2 properties to get their required pumping and inspection. To remain in compliance your system will need to be pumped and inspected by 12/31/2019.
Zone 3 properties will be required to have their systems pumped and inspected in 2020. The Township will send out reminder letters.
If you are in District 1, your cycle ended on December 31, 2018. Those who remain out of compliance will be subject to the full enforcement remedies outlined in the pumping ordinance. The Board of Supervisors thanks all those property owners who complied with these regulations. Zone 1 properties will be required to pump and get inspected again in 2021. The Township will send out reminder letters.
