Municipal Lien Statement – $35.00 per Property
HTSA has a customer portal for customers to view their account and payment histories, sign up for e-billing, or make payments on accounts. The link to the portal is on every page of this website. Payments with an e-check, credit, or debit card still accepted through the “Pay My Bill” link. There is a fee to make payments using the “Pay My Bill” link. Payments made with your checking account through the customer portal are free of charge, while the credit/debit card charges are still subject to the fees. The reference number that the online payment systems are looking for is your account number. HTSA also offers Auto-pay at no charge. Information on this service can be found in Payment Information.
Before the sale of any property connected to the HTSA sewer system, a Dye Test Certification dated within the past 12 months is required to be submitted before a Sewer Lien Letter will be released to a closing company or attorney. This form can be found under “Forms and Information.” Contact the Hanover Township Municipal office with any questions regarding Ordinance 116 requirements.
Under Forms and Information are articles concerning a DEP warning on flushing wipes, baby/flushable wipes, and a chart on the disposal of household waste. Because HTSA maintains a low-pressure system with grinder pumps, these articles are especially important. Charges to repair a grinder pump clogged with “flushable” wipes can be over $1,000.
TIP: If you have a water leak, call PA American Water Company (PAWC) and ask them for a credit. If they give you a credit for that water leak, HTSA will give you an equal credit in gallons on your sewer bill. The customer service number for PAWC is 1-800-565-7292.
Delinquencies lists can be found in Payment Information. It can be expensive to have water service terminated for non-payment of sewer charges. Some of the fees that will be added to the bill are: priority letter charges of $15.00 each, site visit fee for posting the notice on the door of $100 each, PAWC shut off/turn on fees of $30 each, HTSA shut off and turn-on fees of $250 each, PAWC lost revenue fee as determined by PAWC, and legal fees, if necessary.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Only those who have completed the mandatory training session are authorized by HTSA to pick up the grinder pumps and are approved to install the connections. If you need a contractor to install your connection to the sewer system, HTSA is providing a list of the contractors it has authorized to install for Phase 2. The list of contractors can be found on this site under “Forms and Information.” Please be aware that HTSA cannot and does not endorse any contractor, but provides the list only for your information and convenience. You enter into a contract with them at your own risk, so please make sure you understand the contract before signing it. If our office receives complaints about a particular contractor, they may be flagged and/or removed from the list.
