How do I Connnect?

Once the sewer line in front of your property has been completed you may want to consider connecting to the system. If so you may be wondering how you go about making the connection. Remember it is not necessary to connect if the On Lot Disposal System (OLDS) on your property is working properly.  Here are the steps you need to follow to make the connection.

  1. Contact Bucks County Water and Sewer Authority (BCWSA) at 215-343-2538 and request an EDU (Equivalent Dwelling Unit) for your property. Please provide your name, address, phone and an email.
  2. Obtain an invoice from BCWSA that confirms you’ve made the request for the EDU.
  3. Your or your plumber can bring the BCWSA Invoice indicating that you’ve requested the EDU to the Doylestown Township Code Department to obtain a plumbing permit for the lateral connection. Permit fee is $89.50
  4. When your plumber has completed the connection contact the Doylestown Township Code Department for a final inspection.
  5. When the connection inspection is complete you will receive a Certification of Completion from the Doylestown Township Code Department.
  6. Provide a copy of the Certificate of Completion to the BCWSA.
  7. BCWSA will then expect payment of the original invoice ($6,200) for the EDU they issued. You will have thirty (30) days in which to pay BCWSA for the EDU. Your property will then be put into the BCWSA system for monthly billing for sewage use.
  8. You can obtain a Septic Tank Closure Permit with instructions on how to close your septic tank from the Bucks County Health Department by calling (215) 345-3318.
  9. Proceed with decommissioning your Septic Tank
  10. Flush Away.
Updates from BCWSA

BCWSA Employees will be putting safety protocols for the Coronavirus in place on the job site. They will be wearing gloves, keeping distance between each other when possible and as appropriate wiping down equipment and vehicles while in use. Interaction with residents is to be postponed. If a lateral location needs to be adjusted any interaction between residents and BCWSA personnel will be done with the appropriate social distancing and protection needed for safety .

Erosion and Sedimentation controls were checked to protect the creek from runoff and inlet covers were checked on Shady Brook Circle.

In the next 2 weeks we will expect to Install:

-Approx. 200 linear feet of sewer main up to manhole (#14) on Shady Brook Circle.
– The lateral connection stubs for remaining residences on Shady Brook Circle.
– Drop back and do the final creek crossing for Militia Hill connection.
– Continue laying sewer main out of Shady Brook onto Pebble Ridge road placing lateral stubs for residences as we pass them.
– Continue meeting with residents to identify lateral location and depth.

May 28, 2019

The sewer line installation is continuing. We have crossed over Almshouse Road near Militia Hill Road. We will be working in the easement up to Shady Brook Circle over the next two (2) weeks. Weather permitting.

May 6, 2019 

The drilling of the rock (at the Both property) ended on 4/25 , Construction picked up with the sewer main installation again on Monday 4/29. The rock was able to come out with some hammering involved. By the end of 5/3 construction installed 168 LF. down the driveway. We plan on being at the end of the Both property and moving across Almshouse road in 2 weeks (weather permitting).  We expect the installation rate to increase significantly.

April 12, 2019 

We are working on the driveway portion of the Both property at Almshouse and Militia Hill roads. We are also continuing to raise the grade along the easement off Militia hill road to aide in expediting the pipe installation. We have hit significantly dense rock on the Both property and have to start drilling every one foot on center of the trench so we can break the rock. Currently the rock is destroying the bits we use to break it apart. We expect the drilling to take one to two weeks. We are currently only about 2 weeks off our schedule. Once the drilling is completed we will update the projections of the timing of the work. Some minor design changes are being made to reduce the rock being encountered (based on boring results) and to streamline the pipe work.

April 1, 2019 Last week the Construction crew hammered and grinded the 14 LF x 3’D to get to the location of Manhole #4 . Construction hammered and grinded a 4.5’d x8’ x8’w to get the area where manhole #4 was to be set. Construction set Manhole #4 on 3/28/2019 and installed  18’ to make the connection from Manhole # 3a to Manhole # 4, Crew also back-filled around Manhole #4 and back-filled the open trench between Manhole #3a and Manhole #4. 3/29/2019 crew clean-up remaining material and Haul in 300+ Tons of stone from manhole #4 to Manhole #5.

This Week we anticipate to be in the blue rock for another 30 to 60 ft. we are coming out of it with the test holes that we excavated to see if there was rock in various locations. In the beginning we will be grinding about 2-3’of rock in the trench, but hopefully it will be dropping off as we are coming up with the slope of the pipe. As long as the weather holds out we anticipate crossing Almshouse Rd. in 2 weeks.

February 26, 2019 Rutledge Excavating will be start clearing in the right of way on Thursday, February 28. The clearing will start on Old New Road and work its up to Willow.

February 22, 2019 Due to weather and sewer alignment adjustment approvals from DEP the project has been on hold and the crew sent to do other work. We expect to restart the Pebble Ridge work mid next week (2-27-19). We will update the schedule of milestones once we are underway again. All work is weather permitting.

December 28, 2018 “We have been hitting significant rock in the driveway of the Both Property. We have begun discussing some alternative ways to avoid the rock as it has slowed down the production rate. Coupled with weather we are progressing slowly. We hoped to be across Militia Hill next week but we anticipate the rock issue will push us back 3-4 weeks”

November 2, 2018 “Excavation has begun and we have installed 300 lf of 8” SDR-26 (pipe thickness) and Manholes CV#1 and CV#2.  We have begun to encounter rock which were are ripping out with our machine.

The week of the 5 of November we expect to continue installing pipe as well as manholes CV#3 and CV#4. This run will be a slow moving one as the cut in depth of this line will be approximately 22 feet below street level.  As always the schedule is  weather dependent.”

October 12, 2018 “BCWSA will continue saw cutting on Militia hill rd. the week of 10-15. Due to weather we have not been able to excavate at the interceptor, therefore we will be starting excavation at the easement next to Militia Hill rd. by the week of 10-22 possible sooner if weather permits.”

September 14, 2018 “ Material delivery for the first section (Almshouse and Militia hill roads) has been completed. Pipe installation has been delayed due to creek levels and rain expected next week. We expect to begin installation the week of 9-24-18”

Road Program Curbing and Paving Projects
Weekly Updates

Week of 9/14

SAS Geospatial, LLC (surveyor) will start survey stake-out for the curbing project on the following roads.  The surveyor will be in a vehicle identified with their company logo, they will also be wearing florescent survey attire, and they will be following Covid 19 protocols (wearing of masks and staying socially distant from residents).

  • Pebble Crest Road
  • Pebble Ridge Road
  • Shady Brook Circle

Survey stake-out will include the placement of wood survey stakes approximately every 50’ or less, 5’ behind the exiting edge of the combination curb and gutter within the existing roadway right-of-way. Residents are requested not to remove or disturb the survey stakes, as replacing them will add delay and cost to the project.

Week of 9/21

Reasmstown Excavating will mobilize on site to start the removal of the existing combination curb and gutter, prepare the new curb sub-base for Prieto Corporation to bring in a curb machine to install the new curbing.

Residents should be advised of the following:

  • The exiting combination curb and gutter will be removed in front of their property and there will be open trenches at times.  The curb and gutter in front of their driveway will be removed and temporarily replaced with stone.
  • Access to residential driveways will be restricted temporarily during the day (when work is in being done in front of their property), however access will be restored as soon as the demolition/removal is complete.
  • When the new curbing is installed, access will be restricted to residential driveways for a day or two while the concrete sets.
  • Driveway grades will be adjusted as needed to meet the new curb elevation.  Maximum length of driveway adjustment is anticipated not to exceed 20 feet from the curbline into the properties, and may be less in most cases.
  • Contractors will be allowed to store equipment and material within the existing road right-of-way, which includes in the roadway and/or the grass area immediately behind the exiting curb and within public right-of-way.

Township Awards Bids and Approves Paperwork for PENNVEST Loan

On April 17, 2018 the Doylestown Township Board of Supervisors approved the bids for the pump station and the clearing and grubbing for the project. Click here for the article. Be advised that BCWSA still has to approve the bids.

Also, the Board approved the required paperwork associated with the PENNVEST loan. We anticipate closing on the loan in late May. We’ll post additional updates as information becomes available.

Low Interest Loan Application Approved

At their meeting on January 31, 2018 the PennVest Board approved the Township’s application for the low interest loan to pay for the costs associated with the construction and installation of the Pebble Ridge/Woodridge Sewer Project. The receipt of funds from PennVest is subject to a formal settlement, which the Township anticipates will occur within the next four to six months.  As indicated during meetings this past summer, the low interest loan interest rates and loan term offered to us by PennVest will be passed along and will be available to residents as part of a loan program offered through BCWSA to pay for each resident’s costs of the public portion of the Project.

In addition, BCWSA’s engineer Gilmore & Associates will be putting out bids for construction of the pump station, as well as clearing for the project. Permits for the project from PennDot, PA DEP and the Bucks County Conservation District are being finalized.

We still anticipate this project getting underway during the summer of 2018.
