WATER SYSTEM MAINTENANCE...
The Penn Township Municipal Authority will be doing routine maintenance on the PTMA Water System throughout the months of October and November. While the fire hydrants are being flushed and the water valves are being exercised, you may experience temporary low water pressure and discoloration of water, which will subside after you clear your water lines by running cold water in all faucets. Water will be safe to drink at all times throughout this time period.

Attention PTMA Sewer Customers...
For the past four years, we were able to lower your sewer rates, because PTMA benefitted from the sewer treatment plantís change in billing method. Unfortunately, they have reverted to their former method, which is forcing us to raise the quarterly sewer rates to $95.00 per quarter per equivalent dwelling unit (EDU) or $380.00 per annum per EDU. This will be a $15.00 per quarter increase for our residential sewer customers and a $15.00 per EDU quarterly increase for our commercial sewer customers. Please note this is the same sewer rate PTMA charged from 2008 through 2015. The rate increase will take effect on January 1, 2020 and will be reflected in your 1st quarter 2020 sewer billing, which will be sent out at the end of March 2020.

Attention PTMA Water Customers...
It has become very difficult for the PTMA Water Operators to read some of our customer's water meters due to overgrown shrubs and bushes located in front of the water meter touch pads. A water meter touch pad is a black oval plastic pad attached to the exterior of the building, which allows PTMA operators to read the water meter without entering the home or business. PTMA operators must be able to easily access all water meter touch pads. Please be sure that the water meter touch pad, located on the exterior of your home or business, is easily accessible and clear of bushes, shrubs or debris.

PTMA Meeting Agenda...
The Penn Township Municipal Authority will hold it's next monthly meeting on Thursday, December 5, 2019 at the PTMA office at 7:00 p.m. An agenda has been posted.

Attention PTMA Sewer Customers...
We remind our customers that the disposal of household cleaning wipes (Clorox, Lysol, etc.), baby wipes, flushable cleansing wipes, cat litter (flushable and non-flushable), cooking greases, oils, or fats into the PTMA sewer system is prohibited. Do NOT dispose of these items via your drains, toilets or garbage disposals even if the packaging states the product is flushable! Refrigerating oil in an empty coffee can will solidify the oils for easy disposal with your household trash. All other items should also be disposed of with the normal household, facility or business trash, NOT dumped into the PTMA sewer system. We ask that you make a vigilant effort to dispose of these items and other non-flushable items in the proper manner.

Payment Options...
The Northumberland National Bank (NNB) Hummels Wharf Office located at 87 Lori Lane in Hummels Wharf (behind Lowe's) and the Selinsgrove Office located at 411 N. Market Street in downtown Selinsgrove, accepts PTMA water and sewer bill payments. Please remember that we do not accept water and sewer bill payments at the PTMA office. If not paying at NNB, payments must be MAILED to: PTMA, P.O. Box 155, Selinsgrove, PA 17870. All mailed payments must be made in form of a check, money order or certified check. Cash is NOT accepted. To ensure that your payment is correctly applied to your PTMA account, please be sure to enclose your bar-coded stub located at the bottom of your invoice.
