To determine the year a properties on lot sewage disposal system is designated to be pumped out, look at the address label on the township newsletter or your property tax notice. Match the middle number of the property parcel number with the scheduled list above. Example: 66-009-100 (designated for pumping in 2019)
Property Owner Responsibility:

Contact a DEP certified pumper/hauler to schedule the pump out of the on lot sewage disposal system.

Obtain a pumping receipt (bill) from your pumper/hauler that includes a statement from the pumper/hauler that the baffles in the on lot sewage disposal system have been inspected and found to be in good working order.

Provide a copy of the pumping receipt (bill) to the township by December 31, 2019.

The copy can be mailed, brought to the township office, deposited in the silver drop box located at the front entrance of the township building, or e-mail a copy to: washingtontownship@wtwp.org.

For those property owners who schedule the pump out of their on lot sewage disposal system more frequently than the five-year pumping requirement, kindly be reminded to provide the township with a copy of the pumping receipt (bill), at least one time every five years, so records do not reflect your pump out is over the (5) five-year pumping requirement.

Any questions concerning on lot sewage disposal systems should be directed to the Township’s Sewage Enforcement Officer, Brian McFeaters at 717.813.6492.
