PTSA to conduct Manor sewer-line inspections
Manor Council approved an intermunicipal agreement last week with the Penn Township Sewage Authority to perform sewer-line inspections in the borough.
Based on PTSA's existing fee and administrative costs for Manor, those buying new homes or refinancing their homes will pay $182.50 for an inspection.
Borough officials said the inspections will help to ensure that no stormwater, surface water or ground water is entering the borough's sanitary sewer system.
Manor is preparing for a $3 million project to separate and replace aging sewer and storm-water lines in the borough as part of a state mandate.
The Western Westmore-land Municipal Authority also is encouraging officials in its six member communities to implement plans to eliminate excess water from entering its treatment system to prevent overflows at a treatment plant during heavy rains.
