DUE TO THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK, THE OFFICE WILL BE CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC UNTIL THE STAY-AT-HOME ORDER HAS BEEN LIFTED. The office will be available Tuesdays and Fridays between 9:30am and 4:30pm for phone calls, email, and website inquiries. Feel free to place payments in the drop box at the township building or use one of the links on the website to make payments.
THE BRIDGE REPLACEMENT ON BAVINGTON ROAD HAS RESULTED IN A TEMPORARY HTSA DRIVEWAY. PENNDoT HAS REQUESTED THAT HTSA CUSTOMERS LIMIT THEIR VISITS TO THE SEWER OFFICE AND PAYMENT DROP BOX IN THE DRIVEWAY AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. HTSA asks that customers utilize the drop box located at the Hanover Township municipal building, make payments online, or mail their payments until the permanent driveway is in place. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation.
The next regular board meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, April 7, 2020, at the HTSA sewer treatment plant located at 533 Bavington Road, Burgettstown, PA at 7 p.m.
The 2020 Census is fast approaching. Data collected in the census will inform the distribution of more than $675 billion in federal funds to states and communities each year for things like infrastructure, health care, and food assistance. It’s important that we all respond to shape the future of our communities. Learn more at www.2020CENSUS.GOV.
Municipal Lien Statement – $35.00 per Property
For your convenience, a locking payment drop box has been installed at the Hanover Township Building on Municipal Drive to accept sewer payments, forms, or other correspondence for the sewer authority. In an effort to increase security, HTSA has installed a locking mailbox in the driveway at the sewer plant. Hand-delivered payments can be dropped in this box also. Once the bridge replacement project is finished, the mailbox will be moved back out to the end of the driveway for your convenience.
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 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.
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, PAW shut off/turn on fees of $30 each, HTSA shut off and turn-on fees of $250 each, PAW lost revenue fee as determined by PAW, 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. If you have any questions, please contact the office at 724-899-5055.
