I didn’t receive my sewer bill and just received a Past Due Notice. Do I have to pay the late fee if I didn’t receive a bill?

It is the Borough’s policy to not forgive late payment fees. We receive a lot of calls from residents following our mailing of past due sewer bill notices who say they never received the original bill. It is your responsibility to be aware of when bills are mailed and when they are due. This information is provided in almost every Newsletter. If you don’t receive a bill, call the Treasurer at 610–644–2602. She will be happy to provide you with a duplicate bill.

My sewer line backed up, what should I do?

In the event of a sanitary sewer backup at your property, please call the Borough office first. The administration office hours are 9:00 am to 12:00 noon and 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Monday through Friday. After those hours, call 911 and a township highway crew will be dispatched to check the line. Although the Township conscientiously maintains its sewer system, periodic backups into homes or businesses inevitably occur. In most cases, the Borough’s responsibility ends when the line is cleared and the problem causing the blockage has been addressed. Responsibility for cleanup and damage to the premises rests with the resident. The Borough will not reimburse a property owner for plumbing fees. Most homeowners insurance policies have optional riders for sewer backups that, if purchased, will provide coverage.
