PTMA Meeting Agenda...
The Penn Township Municipal Authority will hold it's next monthly meeting on Thursday, March 3, 2016 at the PTMA office at 7:00 p.m. An agenda has been posted.

Payment Options...
The Northumberland National Bank (NNB) Hummels Wharf Office located at 87 Lori Lane in Hummels Wharf (behind Lowe's) and the new 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.

It has become increasingly 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 meter touch read pads. A water meter touch read pad is a black oval plastic pad attached to the exterior of the home, which allows PTMA operators to read the water meter without entering the home. PTMA operators must be able to easily access all meter touch read pads. Please be sure that the meter touch read pad, located on the exterior of your home, is easily accessible and clear of bushes or shrubs.

Penn Township Municipal Authority (PTMA) has been notified by the regional sewer treatment facility, known as the Eastern Snyder County Regional Authority (ESCRA), that the grease and organic discharges from PTMA customers have exceeded the allowable limits. According to ESCRA, most of the overload comes from food waste and large grease discharges.

An empty coffee can kept in your refrigerator will solidify the oils for easy disposal with your household trash. All other items should also be disposed of with the normal household trash, NOT dumped into the PTMA sewer system. If the grease and organic discharge overload persists, PTMA will be charged a substantial fee from the regional authority, which ultimately will force PTMA to substantially raise your quarterly sewer rates. We ask that you make a vigilant effort to dispose of cooking greases, oils, fats and other non-flushable products in the proper manner.
