ONLOT SEWAGE MAINTENANCE PROGRAM

 Program Requirements

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Department of Environmental Protection, requires every municipality to adopt an Act 537, Sewage Facilities Plan.  The plan must identify all existing sewer systems within the municipality.  It must further identify areas with sewage problems and then provide for adequate sewage treatment facilities and means of disposal of all sewage generated within the municipality.  As part of Granville Township's plan, the Department required the Township to adopt and enforce an ordinance for the management of on lot disposal systems.

Granville Township has been divided into five (5) sewage management districts.  Each year one (1) district will be required to have their on lot sewage system inspected by the Township Sewage Enforcement Officer and pumped by a licensed septic pumper if instructed by the SEO that pumping is required.

In March of the current year the residents of the appropriate zone will receive a letter from the Township instructing that the appropriate inspection fee be submitted to the Township and a licensed pumper be contacted.  Once the on lot system has been pumped the hauler will complete the necessary paperwork to the Township and the Inspector will come inspect the tank.  Generally the Inspector is just a few days behind the pumper.

It is highly recommended that if your tank does not currently have a riser installed that one be installed at the time of your initial pumping and inspection.

If your on lot system is found to be malfunctioning, the Sewage Enforcement Officer will give you instructions on what is required next.
