Sewer System customers may now pay their bills online using a Visa, Discover, MasterCard, or American Express credit card.  This service does come with a service fee charge (convenience fee) which is posted below.  This charge is collected through eNETPAY for their services.  This fee does not go to the township.  If you have any further questions, call the Eldred Township office at (814) 436-7654.

Sewer Customer Letter 2018

The sewer rate of $45.00 per month is based on the cost of operation, DEP fees, insurance, etc., as well as all sewer system customers making prompt and on time payments.  Payments are due on the 1st of the month.  If not paid by the 20th day of the month an administrative fee of $12.00 will be added monthly.  For your convenience, a secured drop off box is at the township building located on Newton Road.  Payments may be dropped off at any time.  Payments are collected daily.  If a payment is collected on the 21st and the check is dated the 20th, the payment will still be late.  All collection fees for delinquent sewer payments will be passed on to the customer.  Prompt payments are a savings to you as well as the Sewer System.

Another way to keep the cost of the monthly sewer rate as low as possible is if everyone follows the rules of never putting the following items into the sewer system - baby wipes, sanitary napkins or tampons, diapers, household greases/fats, flammable materials, lubricating oil, strong chemicals, glass or any cloth materials of any kind.  No sump pumps or gutters should be connected to the sewer system for any reason.  By following these rules, extra maintenance to the pump stations can be eliminated. 

 

Please help us keep costs low by sending in your payments on time and following the rules of not putting anything in your sewer system that does not belong and will cause unnecessary problems and additional costs associated with extra maintenance. 

 

Your cooperation in this matter will help us keep costs down.  If you should have any questions, please give us a call at the township office at (814) 436-7654.  By working together, we will see the best results and savings.  Thank you!

Sewer System History

The Eldred Township Sewer System was built in 2005 and the Sewer Plant is located on Wood Street in Grand Valley, PA.  The Sewer System provides services to approximately 140 customers in the township.

 

There is a drop off box located at the township building for your convenience, but please keep in mind that the payment received date is based on the date the payment was dropped off in the box not the date of the check, so back dating a check doesn’t mean it wasn’t late.  Please make sure your payment is in the box on time to avoid late fees, after all, there is already a 20-day grace period. 

 

If you should need to discuss payments or any other concerns, you may call the township office.  If you cannot pay your bill on time, please make payment arrangements with the Township before things get out of hand and legal actions are taken.                           

                                                                                                                                

Please help with grinder pump maintenance by never putting baby wipes, sanitary products, grease / fats, chemicals, or cloth materials of any kind into the sewer system.  These items will cause the grinder pump to stop working and your red light will turn on indicating maintenance is needed.  If your grinder pump needs service and the red light is flashing, you should immediately turn off the power to your pump by pulling the breaker and call the township office to leave a message that your pump needs service.  It is your responsibility to report grinder pump problems to the township.  It is the only way we know there is a problem and your pump needs maintenance.  We appreciate your cooperation and help with these matters!
