Will I have input as to where the home lateral will be installed on my property?

Yes. Representatives of the Township and Municipal Authority will place a stake in the yard of each property to be connected showing the design location of the house service lateral. This is necessary because the Township will be installing the public laterals between the sewer main and the street right-of-way for each home. We want to locate the public lateral so that it helps to minimize the distance and property impact of the service line the homeowners will need to have installed. A sketch illustrating the make-up of the lateral and service line is posted on the Municipal Authority page of the Township website within the link entitled Service Line Construction Specifications.
