General Sewer Information
Homes in Doylestown Township may have public sewer or may utilize a Septic System. Bucks County Water and Sewer Authority owns the public sewer system in our Township. They can be reached at (215) 343-2538 or by visiting their webpage http://www.bcwsa.net/
Home owners with public sewer and public water may want to consider switching to a deduct meter. A deduct meter will save money on a sewer bill if a home owner is filling a pool or using an irrigation/lawn sprinkler system. The cost for the deduct meter and installation is $750.

Township Awards Bids and Approves Paperwork for PENNVEST Loan
On April 17, 2018 the Doylestown Township Board of Supervisors approved the bids for the pump station and the clearing and grubbing for the project. Click here for the article. Be advised that BCWSA still has to approve the bids.
Also, the Board approved the required paperwork associated with the PENNVEST loan. We anticipate closing on the loan in late May. We’ll post additional updates as information becomes available.
Low Interest Loan Application Approved
At their meeting on January 31, 2018 the PennVest Board approved the Township’s application for the low interest loan to pay for the costs associated with the construction and installation of the Pebble Ridge/Woodridge Sewer Project. The receipt of funds from PennVest is subject to a formal settlement, which the Township anticipates will occur within the next four to six months. As indicated during meetings this past summer, the low interest loan interest rates and loan term offered to us by PennVest will be passed along and will be available to residents as part of a loan program offered through BCWSA to pay for each resident’s costs of the public portion of the Project.
In addition, BCWSA’s engineer Gilmore & Associates will be putting out bids for construction of the pump station, as well as clearing for the project. Permits for the project from PennDot, PA DEP and the Bucks County Conservation District are being finalized.
We still anticipate this project getting underway during the summer of 2018.
