Changes to Environmental Services Billing

You may have noticed a new charge on your Environmental Services Bill from the Township this month. A Stormwater Fee was enacted by the Board of Supervisors at its July 10, 2018 meeting. North Fayette, like many other communities across the State of Pennsylvania, are facing increased costs to comply with the ever-tightening restrictions placed upon them by the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System Program, a subdivision of the Clean Water Act. For North Fayette, this means additional costs of more than $450,000 every year to achieve compliance and pass random DEP audits.

Several options were considered for funding the program, including a property tax increase, but the decision to apply a fee, much like the sanitary sewer fees, was made so ALL property owners will pay this fee based upon the amount of impervious surface they have on their property (i.e., the amount of storm water runoff they contribute). Additionally, per State law regarding storm water fees, funds generated can only be used to comply with these DEP regulations and nothing else. Monies received from this fee will be placed in a separate fund to complete stormwater projects.

North Fayette will be completing several large stormwater projects over the next several years to improve water quality and will keep the public informed and involved.
