March 30 Update:

The bids for the North I-81 Sewer Extension Project, as mandated by the Township’s Act 537 Sewage Facilities Plan, were awarded at the March 16, 2022 Authority meeting.  The Authority Engineer and staff will be meeting with the contractors in early April to go over the project requirements and proposed schedule.  


Residents are advised that equipment and materials will now be moving in to the project areas in and around the 200 block of Sample Bridge Road, Sunset Drive, Wertzville Road, Wild Rose Lane, South Locust Lane and Millers Gap Road areas.  Crews will also be coming out to begin staking out the sewer line installation areas and begin tree removal over the next several weeks.  


Periodic updates will be provided on this website to communicate the schedules and areas that the contractors will be working in as the sewer installation progresses.  This message will be updated again on or after April 8, 2022.  Please note that residential connections to the sanitary sewer system will not occur until the infrastructure installation is complete and is able to accept sewage flows, which will not be before 2023.
