ATTENTION: SEWER BILLING CHANGE: JANUARY 1ST, 2018
On January 1st, 2018 the Bucks County Water and Sewer Authority took over the sewer billing process for the Township. Over 3,300 owners of Township properties which are connected to the public sewer system are required to pay a quarterly service charge (or rent) to Lower Gwynedd Township. In the past the Township has mailed sewer rental bills to residents and have collected the required rental fees. That process is now provided by the Bucks County Water and Sewer Authority (BCWSA). The BCWSA will mail residential sewer rental bills during the months of January, April, July and October (quarterly). Rents paid after the due date are subject to a 10% penalty. In addition, interest of 2.5% is added to the balance 120 days from the due date. Residential property owners with delinquent balances are subject to the imposition of lien, civil court or water shut-off pursuant to agreement between Lower Gwynedd Township and the servicing water authorities. In the event of a shut-off, the delinquent property owner shall also be charged all costs and expenses incurred by the Township to effectuate the shut-off.
Lower Gwynedd Township will no longer accept or process payments. All sewer billing inquires, payments, and related information will be handled directly through BCWSA.
