On Tuesday, June 18, 2024, the Board of Supervisors approved new sewer rates beginning July 1, 2024 of $60.61 fixed rate and $12.00/per thousand gallons variable compared to the old rates of $55.61 fixed rate and $9.70/per thousand gallons variable. As a result of the new rates and changes in your water consumption, you should expect to see a change in the July 2024 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 and  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.
