Septic Permits


In order to dispose of the wastewater (sewage) generated by homes and commercial facilities without public sewer access, on-lot sewage disposal systems are installed to serve individual properties. Pennsylvania law requires you to obtain a permit from the township before you repair an existing system, or construct a building for which a sewage disposal system will be needed. A properly designed, installed, and maintained on-lot sewage disposal system - septic system- can provide years of trouble-free service. Properly operated on-lot systems also allow recycling of treated water into the ground, which is an environmental benefit for our Township.
