Sanitary Sewer Usage
Posted: March 31, 2020
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and governmental shut down of many businesses and educational facilities, many residents are restricted to “Stay/Shelter at Home.” As such, there are increased demands on both the township’s sanitary sewer and water infrastructure as our water and sewer department staff continue to monitor and maintain these required services for the township’s residents.
To assist our staff in maintaining the township’s sanitary sewer system including the sewer pump stations, we are kindly requesting that all residents not dispose of items such as Swiffer mops or wipes, sanitary napkins, baby wipes, diapers or cloths into the sewer collection system.
These items can also cause extensive damage to sewerage pump station pumps, resulting in costly pump replacements and repairs. These items can also create blockages in the sewer collection lines and can result in sewer back flowing into homes as well as into our stormwater conveyance systems and waterways.
The township appreciates your anticipated cooperation.
