ON-LOT SEWAGE DISPOSAL SYSTEM MANAGEMENT:

Pequea Township is responsible for monitoring existing on-lot sewage disposal systems. This is required by the Department of Environmental Protection through the Township’s Act 537 Sewage Facilities Plan and the Pequea Township On-lot Sewage Disposal System Management Ordinance. The process includes locating the individual system, possible pumping of the tank, checking the condition of the treatment tank, checking the condition of the absorption area and associated components. This inspection is to ensure proper functionality and to protect the surface and ground waters of Pequea Township. The efficient management of this program requires the cooperation of all property owners and residents.

This program, which was adopted in March of 2016, involves the property owner contacting a registered pumping contractor or authorized agent of the Township, once every three (3) years for septic tank pumping and system inspection. If your system was pumped after April of 2014 you do not need to have it pumped again but do need to submit a copy of the record to the Township. Please note your three-year pumping period will commence from the date of your last pumping.

You may only utilize a registered pumper. If you have a working relationship with a pumper/hauler not registered with us, please let us know and we will follow up to determine if they wish to be included in our program.

In order to perform the required inspection, all pumping must occur through the access manhole so please make sure that it is accessible. The pumping contractor will pump and inspect your system then complete a Township report which will need to be submitted to the municipal office at 1028 Millwood Road, Willow Street, PA 17584. All registered pumpers have been supplied copies of the official report forms.

Section 17.D.2 of the Pequea Township On-Lot Sewage Disposal Management Ordinance permits the lengthening of the three-year pumping cycle under certain circumstances.  Please review the On-Lot Septic Pumping Cycle Extension Request for more information.

If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact the municipal office at (717) 464-2322.
