Sewer & Water Companies:
Sewer System Information
Effective July 25, 2018, Limerick Township sold its sewer operations to Essential Utilities (Aqua America of PA). Essential Utilities began invoicing its sewer customers on a monthly basis in August 2018.
Customers still have outstanding balances due to Limerick Township for charges for July 2018 and prior. Those customers continue to receive “Past Due” notices. We encourage these customers to pay any balance due as soon as possible to prevent additional charges to their account. Any customer with a balance past due 180 days, regardless of the amount, may have a lien placed against their property as well as a charge of $221.00 for filing fees and legal fees.
Any old customer with a credit greater than $5.00 will be refunded in December 2018. Those customers with a credit balance of less than $5.00 may be refunded in cash at the Township Building weekdays between 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM. Please contact 610-495-5750 to arrange this payment.

Please be advised that any lot created after 1972 is required to also have a Planning Module issued by DEP. To find out if the Township has record of a Planning Module for a proposed lot, contact Christopher Volpe at 610-495-6432, ext. 175. If the Township does not have this record, a Mailer would need to be completed and filed with DEP prior to the County processing a permit for the private sewer system.
