Lower Gwynedd Township's Public Works Department is responsible for the maintenance of roads, sewer lines and park facilities in the Township. Michael DeStefano is the Public Works Director. The hours of the department are from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. - Monday to Friday.
Lower Gwynedd residents with swimming pools or irrigation systems may install a by-pass meter that measures the amount of water that is used but does not discharge into sanitary sewer system. A portion of the metered water which is eliminated from entering the sanitary sewer system can then be deducted from your sewer bill.
The by-pass meter must be purchased from the Township and a permit for the installation must be obtained. The present cost for a meter is $56.00, the installation permit is $50.00 along with a one-time $50.00 inspection fee totaling an upfront cost of $156.00. Thereafter, a $25.00 administrative fee is paid annually to the Township. All meters must be installed by a registered master plumber.
Alternatively, homeowners with in-ground swimming pools may receive an annual $25.00 credit and above-ground pools can receive an annual $10.00 credit on their sewer bill without the costs of installing a by-pass meter.
If you wish to discuss either option, contact Linda Melnick or Mary Trocino at the Lower Gwynedd Township Building 215-646-5302.
