Sewer Credit / Rates

Sewer Credit Information

On March 5, 2019, Township Council adopted Resolution 22-2019, which approved a new Sewer Credit Policy allowing homeowners the opportunity to claim credits on their quarterly sewer bill due to irrigation and/or pool fills.

Those seeking credits are responsible to register via a Township application filed with the CTSD prior to request for a credit. The application fee is $25 and must be renewed each year. Credits will be issued at the applicable billing rate in effect at the time of the usage. All credit requests must be received by November 1st in the given year of the recorded usage. In order to received credits, customers must either provide the Township, per the application, with the time stamped/dated photographs of the usage readings and/or request the Township's inspectors, for an additional fee, to inspect and read the meter to verify the credits requested.

Sewer Rates
After many resident and customer requests for more equitable sewer rates, Concord Township Council authorized a study to explore a “usage based” rate structure. As a result, the Township approved a new rate structure based on consumption, which began May 1, 2018. The less expensive base rate is set for up to 10,000 gallons used per quarter. Additional charges will be affixed when consumption is in excess of the 10,000 gallons used per quarter.

All rates are based off consumption records provided to the Township by your water provider (Chester Water Authority or Suez Water).

Please see below for quarterly sewer rates and water conservation ideas.

Installing Rain Barrels
Rain barrels capture and store rain water; making it available for watering gardens, washing cars and other activities – instead of using the hose. The collected rain water is used in place of your utility or well water, therefore reducing costs.

Affordable rain barrels can be purchased or consider making your own.  Click Here to see how.

Concord Township does not provide, promote or endorse any pool fill service.
