North Fayette Township is responsible for the maintenance and repair of the sanitary sewer system. The sanitary sewer system is connected to two different treatment plants. For the majority of residents that live north of Steubenville Pike, sewage is treated by the Moon Township Municipal Authority. All other Township residents are served by Allegheny County Sanitary Authority (ALCOSAN). The sewage portion of your Environmental Services bill is calculated on water usage reported by Western Allegheny County Municipal Authority or PA American Water. The minimum quarterly bill is $67.50 and is calculated on a minimum usage of 9,000 gallons per quarter at a rate of $7.50 per thousand gallons. Usage that exceeds the minimum is charged an additional $7.50 per 1,000 gallons of water used. The Township periodically does a rate study to make sure that the per-thousand-gallon amount is not too high or low, based on charges received by the treatment plants.
