FEBRUARY PTMA MEETING VENUE CHANGE...
The February 4, 2021 PTMA meeting will be held at 7:00 p.m. in the Bingo Room of VFW Post 6631 located at 940 Route 522, Selinsgrove, PA 17870. An agenda has been posted.

4TH QUARTER 2020 BILLING...
The 4th quarter 2020 water and sewer bills have been mailed to our customers. To avoid late fees, please be sure to submit your payment on or before Friday, January 22, 2021.

PAYMENT OPTION CHANGE...
Due to new banking procedures at the Northumberland National Bank (NNB), PTMA will no longer accept PTMA water and sewer bill payments made in-person at a NNB branch office. Please remember that we do not accept water and sewer bill payments at the PTMA office, the Penn Township Supervisors' office, or the Penn Township Supervisors' lock box. All payments must be MAILED to: PTMA, P.O. Box 155, Selinsgrove, PA 17870 and be made in the form of a check, money order or certified check. For security reasons, 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. We appologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

PTMA SEWER CUSTOMER WARNING...
In these uncertin times as the government announces mandates and closures and certain items like toilet paper are hard to find, the Penn Township Municipal Authority has issued a warning to our sewer customers to not create “fatberg blockages.” Fatbergs are the product of fat and non-biodegradable matter such as wipes and paper towels, which do not break down. By using these non-biodegradable products for toilet paper and flushing them into the sewer system it causes "fatbergs," which can block sewer lines. This may require response from municipal personnel, pumping contractors, and traffic control; and, it can ultimately create a condition of pollution and remediation cleanup. Many wipes are labeled flushable; however, they are not biodegradable. Please be advised only the 3Ps should be flushed down the toilet – Poo, Pee and (toilet) Paper.

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!

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.
