Public Notice regarding Sewage Facilities (Act 537) Plan

The Council of Concord Township, Delaware County is considering adopting an updated revision to the Township’s Sewage Facilities (ACT 537) Plan.  Prior to Council review, the Township is accepting comments on the Plan for a period of thirty (30) days beginning March 28, 2017.

The Concord Township’s Act 537 Plan “Current Plan” provides for the establishment of individual Sewer Planning Districts (District) to be used as a basis for evaluating sections of the Township for public sewer service projects or continued individual on-site disposal systems.  If future evaluation of a District requires a change or modification to the sewage disposal method, an Act 537 Special Study will be performed to further detail alternatives in the District.

The Act 537 Plan can be reviewed in its entirety at the Concord Township Municipal Building, 43 Thornton Road, Glen Mills, PA between the hours of 8:30 AM and 4:00 PM.  Stakeholders are encouraged to make an appointment to view the document by contacting the Sewer Department at (610) 459-8911 x108.  Comments will be accepted at the Township Building during the thirty (30) day public review period.
The Township Council will consider adoption of this plan at the June 6, 2017 public meeting.
