Sewage Management

Ordinances with regard to Sewage Management

Currently, the Township does not have an on-lot sewage management ordinance.  Information will be updated as it becomes available.  An introduction to this process is in the article, “On-Lot Sewage Maintenance Ordinance” on page 1 of the Fall 2013 Honey Brook Township newsletter.

See the Planning Commission Minutes page and the Board of Supervisors Minutes page for more details.
