WATER AND SEWER DEPARTMENT
Warrington Township is in the process of installing a new financial system. This new system includes a new utility billing process for the Water and Sewer Department. Customers billed since January 1, 2012 have already received the newly designed bill. Water and Sewer bills are now a full sheet of paper and sent in an envelope. The new bill meets the government privacy requirements.
Like any change, we have experienced some problems. Most of these have been internal and have caused some delays in billing. The department felt it was better to delay the bills in the name of accuracy rather impacting customer confidence. In addition, we are still experiencing difficulty with the on-line payment system. If you are currently paying on-line you will not be able to see any activity after the first of this year. Payments should be made by cash or check through the mail or in person at our offices in the township building or by credit card over the phone or in person at the office. Remember we do have a drop box at the front of the township building for after hours payments. We apologize for these inconveniences and hope to have them cleared by the end of the first quarter.
If you as a customer have noticed any other problems you can help us by calling, writing or e-mail at our web-site www.warringtontownship.org and link to the water and sewer department.
On a more positive note we hope we will be able to process automatic transfer payments through your bank. Watch for the announcements of our expanding services on your bill.
All water & sewer payments must be sent to 852 Easton Rd, Warrington, PA 18976. Any payments sent to 1585 Turk Road will be returned by the post office and late fees will be assessed. The water and sewer department moved in November 2009 and notices have been sent on the bills since that time in addition to other notifications. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR ONLINE BILL PAYMENT SERVICES REMIT TO ADDRESS HAS BEEN UPDATED TO AVOID PENALTIES.
We MUST have the completed form to issue any sewer credits. These are one time a year credits for filling your pool. For every thousand gallons used, a sewer credit of $6.10 will be credited on your account. The form can be found on our website (Click here for a form) and can be returned to our office by mail, email or delivered in person. Please remember NO CREDITS will be issued if the form is not completed and submitted as specified.
Your meter is usually found in your basement or utility area and is pictured below. If you are asked to read your meter or you need readings for your pool credits, we ask that you provide all the numbers visible, including the tenths of gallons.
Please keep in mind that any water use will raise your bill; this includes outside use such as watering and irrigation systems. We do not issue credits for lawn watering or irrigation use. For every gallon of water used through your domestic meter, you are charged for water and for sewer. If you have an irrigation meter, you can use that for any water lines that are for outdoor use only. You are only billed for water on irrigation meters. Please call our offices if you are interested in purchasing an irrigation meter or would like more details.
Water Conservation Tips:
Pool Water Disposal:
Dispose chlorinated and pool water responsibly. Save our streams and aquatic life. Use a pool cover to cut down on evaporation. Call (215) 343-1800 or email us at info@WTWSD.org.
If you own a property that is not connected to public water and/or public sewer and either one or both is available, the following two ordinances are applicable upon the sale of your property and should be included in your agreement of sale:
Public Sewer Ordinance # 95-3 enacted February 21, 1995 by the Board of Supervisors and Public Water Ordinance # 2003-O-15 enacted September 9, 2003 by the Board of Supervisors.
Both Ordinances state that all persons owning an occupied building now erected upon property accessible to sanitary sewer system and or public water system shall at their own expense connect such building within ninety (90) days after notice to do so from the Township or Warrington Township Water and Sewer Department.
Please contact the Water and Sewer Department at 215-343-1800 to obtain more information.
Abandonment of Unused Systems:
In-ground and Elevated Sand Mounds
Many believe the used material from these systems are hazardous wastes. This is not the case. The berm material is an acceptable fill material. The aggregate makes an acceptable road or driveway base, and the sand, if spread and air dried or limed, can also be used as a fill or soil enhancer.
