The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) has ordered the temporary shutdown of Summer Hill well #5 for required quality testing. The testing and clearances are expected to take up to three (3) weeks. On June 14, 2018, Summer Hill well #6 was shut down because of testing exceedances based on PADEP criteria. At no time was there an unsafe condition on the system. The township has requested voluntary water use restrictions be implemented by the residents within the system and have alerted the fire company not to use the system except in a life threating situation. A public alert notification has been issued via our automated alert system to communicate information. Once the required testing takes place with favorable (expected) results, the well can be put back in service and the restrictions lifted. The next update will issued on or around August 15 – sooner if applicable. Thank you for your cooperation.

Important News About Open Burning..Effective February 22, 2012 the Township has officially rescinded its Open Burning Policy and will no longer issue permits. This action is a result of formal notification from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PaDEP) that we are a mandated community under Act 101 and thus any burning is regulated by the state and we cannot supersede its authority. Based on the state law, the only property owners permitted to burn are those considered to be "working farms", defined as the production of agricultural commodities in their unmanufactured state on the premises of the farm operation. Campfires and ceremonial fires are also permitted. Yard waste is NOT permitted to be burned. Yard waste is defined as leaves, grass clippings, garden residue, tree trimmings, chipped shrubbery, and other vegetative materials. Because the Township is a mandated community we are responsible for the enforcement of this Act, and will do what is necessary to ensure that the Township and our residents remain in compliance with it.(Because of the volume of inquiries, we have decided to leave this on the website.)
