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-
System Inspections Mandatory in 2017 for District 2 Properties
This is a reminder that property owners in District 2 are required to have their septic systems pumped and inspected by a registered Pumper/Hauler, and their report, submitted to Upper Macungie Township by December 31, 2017.
A list of registered Pumper/Haulers can be found here- 2017 UMT Registered Pumper/Haulers. Scheduled maintenance of your on-lot septic system helps protect and maintain a healthy environment for future generations. It reduces high costs incurred by property owners if their septic system fails. This staged program monitors proper function and protects our water table as mandated by the PA Department of Environmental Protection.
For more facts on District 2 boundaries and requirements, please contact Renee’ Faust at 610-395-4892, ext. 133 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
