The Northern Neighbors service area includes the Borough of Watsontown, the Village of Dewart and parts of Delaware Township. The PA DEP approved the Act 537 Plan which provides for the abandonement of the existing Delaware Township and Watstontown Borough WWTP's and ultimatelty connects these wastewater collection systems into the Milton WWTP via forcemain. It is expected that this Northern Neighbors project will be completed by August 31, 2013.
The newly constructed Watsontown pump station is expected to be connected to the new forcemain in May of 2013 and begin sending their wastewater flow to the MRSA facility. At this time, the MRSA will take over the operation of this pump station and assume the responsibility of billing the Borough of Watsontown sewer customers.
The new Dewart pump station should be connected a month or so after the completion of the Watsontown pump station connection.
Please see the Billing Information page regarding the new billing rates.
