Worthwhile, Maybe Not Exciting, Reading

There are XX sewer manholes in Lower Pottsgrove (PA) Township. Really.

There are almost 3,000 sewer manholes in Lower Pottsgrove. See what you learn from newsletters?

SANATOGA PA – All the news that’s seemingly fit to print about the Lower Pottsgrove Sewer Authority has officially hit the digital street.

The five-member authority, which is responsible for operation and maintenance of the township’s sanitary sewer system and its more than 46 miles of pipe, has published its first newsletter. The Lower Pottsgrove Township Authority News, Volume 1, Issue 1 released earlier this month, is now available for download as an Adobe Acrobat portable document format (PDF) file from the township’s website.

The newsletter is the authority’s attempt to increase public awareness of what it does and, more specifically, to implore customers to look for and remove any illegal connections to the system. Illegal water sources include sump pumps, floor drains or surface runoff seepage. Every gallon of extra water that must be treated in the system adds to the cost of its operation, for which all residential customers pay $460 a year.

The two-page newsletter includes a history of the authority, a description of illegal connections and how they can be eliminated, an explanation of sewer rates, and a list of frequently asked questions and their answers.
