PROCEDURE FOR PUMPING AND INSPECTING

ON – LOT SEWER SYSTEMS

1. The Township will send you a letter indicating this is your calendar year to have the system pumped and inspected. This will happen every three years.

2. Please contact your hauler and have the hauler contact Jeffrey Warmkessel to schedule an appointment for the inspection. Mr. Warmkessel, Sewer Enforcement Officer for Muhlenberg Township’s phone number is (610) 898-7630 extension 21.

3. The hauler will give you a Manifest.

4. The Township needs to have a copy of the manifest to keep on file for the DEP.

After your system is pumped bring the manifest to the Engineering Department at the Township building so that a copy can be made for theDEP.

At this time you will need to pay the $75. per tank inspection fee. The check should be made payable to Muhlenberg Township.

5. The Township will also need a copy of your invoice to keep on file.

DO NOT allow the hauler to pump the system if the Sewer Enforcement Officer is not present to inspect the system. In the event you do, the system will be required to be pumped again so that the inspection can take place.
