PUBLIC MESSAGE

As we continue to perform our essential critical infrastructure function of treating millions of gallons of sewage daily, there are reports of unanticipated issues resulting from the shelter in place orders and perceived shortage of toilet paper.

Customers may be inclined to use a variety of substitute materials such as paper towels, baby wipes, or “flushable” wipes.  Despite misleading labeling, flushable wipes should never be flushed and absolutely none of the imaginative variety of alternative materials should be flushed down the toilet.

While flushable wipes and any paper products other than toilet paper are problematic for DTMA, our real concern is for our customers and homeowners.  Flushing anything other than toilet paper has the real potential to cause a blockage in your sewer lateral.  When a lateral blockage does occur, the best case for a homeowner is a several hundred dollar plumber’s bill to unblock your lateral, while the worst case for a homeowner is several thousand dollars of damage and irreplaceable losses from a flooded basement caused by the back-up from a blocked lateral.

Please remember the 3 “P’s when you flush the toilet.  Only pee, poop, and [toilet] paper should be flushed down the toilet.  It’s not worth the chance of a blocked lateral.  Please dispose of all “substitute” materials including anything labeled as “flushable wipes” in the trash!

Stay calm, stay home, and stay safe!

NOTICE TO DTMA CUSTOMERS

UPDATE:  November 11, 2021

DERRY TOWNSHIP MUNICIPAL AUTHORITY
2022 RATE ADJUSTMENT

FOR SANITARY SEWER CUSTOMERS ONLY:

After careful review of the proposed 2022 Fiscal Year Budget, the Authority has approved a moderate user rate increase of 2%. The rate increase will help to offset inflationary increases in operation, maintenance, and administrative costs associated with the collection, conveyance, and treatment of more than 1.5 billion gallons of sewage and the processing of 5,000 tons of sewage sludge or biosolids annually. The rate increase will also help fund sustainable capital improvement projects in order to maintain the level of service provided to our ratepayers.
