Sump Pump Notice
As a reminder, it is ILLEGAL to have a sump pump connected to the Borough’s sewer system. Excess water flow through the sewers increases water bill rates for all residents and businesses. Recent rainfall events have highlighted this issue as water on certain streets was caused by sump pumps illegally connected to the sewer lines. As a result, the Borough will be increasing enforcement efforts. For more information please contact the Public Works department who can advise on how to ensure your sump pump is up to code. There is a grace period to make the necessary corrections before fines will be issued so please take this opportunity to ensure your property is compliant.
