Sewer and Refuse Bills

Sewer Rates

On Tuesday, July 7, 2020, the Board of Supervisors approved new sewer rates for 2020 of $32.41 fixed and $9.13 per thousand gallons variable. The 3rd quarter bills will be sent out on Wednesday, July 15th. As a result of the new rates and changes in your metered consumption, you should expect to see a modest change in your next bill. Please contact the Township if you have any questions or concerns about your new bill.

Your sewer bill is comprised of two parts: 1) a Fixed Rate and 2) a Variable Rate. The Fixed Rate is based on the fixed costs to operate the sewer system. All users pay the same Fixed Rate, regardless of the amount of water used by the individual customer. The Variable Rate is based on the actual amount of water used by the customer. The Variable Rate covers such costs as electric, chemicals, and maintenance & repair of the sewer system, which vary depending on the quantity of sewage processed.

To calculate your sewer consumption for any given year, the Township takes an average of your quarterly water consumption between the 4th quarter of the previous year and the 1st quarter of the current year, based on data provided from Aqua.
