The Jackson Township Sewer Authority’s Wastewater collection system and treatment plant currently serves over 1400 sewer customers. The collection system consists of approximately 22 miles of gravity collection mains, 6 miles of force mains and 8 pump stations. The Sewer Authority bills customers on a quarterly annual basis for collection, treatment and system maintenance.
ON-LOT SEPTIC SYSTEM SERVICE
Those residents who are not connected to the public sewer system are served by private on-lot septic systems that are regulated by the Pennsylvania Sewage Facilities Act. The Township was mandated to require those property owners to have their on-lot septic system pumped, inspected and report the results of that inspection to the Township Office once every three years. The Township has divided the area into three districts and each year has a designated district whose property owners have to have this pumping, inspection and reporting completed even if they are not experiencing malfunctions. If you are unsure of the district you are in or the year you are required to have this completed, check with the Township Office.
