FAQ

1) Q: Can I connect my sump pump, roof leaders, and/or downspouts to the sanitary sewer line?

A: No. This is against U.S.T. Ordinance #234 that prohibits the introduction of storm water into the sanitary sewer system. This ordinance, passed in 1984, carries a maximum fine of $1,000.00 per day and 90 days imprisonment.

2) Q: What activities in my home use the most water?

Toilet flushing

40%

Bath & shower

32%

Laundry

14%

Dishwashing

6%

Cooking and Drinking

5%

Bathroom sink

3) Q: Where does the water go after it goes down the drain?

A: If you are connected to the sewer system, all the drains in your home are connected to a single pipe that leads to the street. The pipe in the street collects wastewater from other homes in town and flow to a large pumping station. Since we do not have a treatment plant, we pump our wastewater to the City of Philadelphia, through Lower Southampton Twp. There the water is treated and cleaned.

4) Q: Where does the Water Authority get its water from?

A: The Water Authority gets about 80% of our water from the City of Philadelphia Treatment Plant located in the Northeast. About 20% comes from three deep municipal wells throughout town.
