Attention residents who have not paid their refuse or sewer bills-
On June 23, 2015 the Board of Supervisors adopted Ordinance 2015 – 04. This ordinance authorizes the staff to turn over delinquent refuse and sewer accounts to an outside collection agency. If you have received notices from the Township or the Sewer Authority that your account is delinquent you are at risk of having your account sent to a collection agency.
There will be additional fees and charges added to your balance if your account is sent to the collection agency.
If you wish to bring your account up to date please call 610 398-9171.
On-Lot Sewage Ordinance Update-
Sewage System Inspections Mandatory in 2019 for District 1 Properties
This is a program to monitor the proper function of UMT owners’ on-lot sewage systems to protect our water table and overall environment. It is a staged program which is mandated by the PA Department of Environmental Protection and implemented by municipalities.
This ordinance provides a staged program by dividing the township into three districts. The residents in District 3 last pumped their septic systems in 2015. Those who have not pumped their system since 2015 by an UMT registered Pumper/Hauler are required to do so prior to December 31 2018.
In early February, District 1 property owners will be mailed a letter, form and District map as a reminder to have their septic systems cleaned and inspected by a registered Pumper/Hauler before December 31, 2019. In 2020, District 2 will receive the same reminder letter.
Scheduled maintenance of on-lot septic system helps reduce high costs incurred by property owners should their septic system fail, but ultimately protects and maintains a healthy environment for future generations. More information about the On-Lot Sewage Management Ordinance and a list of registered Pumper/Haulers can be found on our website or contact Renee Faust at 610-395-4892 (ext. 136) / email@example.com.
