Cheltenham Township began an eight-year program to conduct a
community-wide evaluation of its sanitary sewer system the week of January 30, 2017. Starting in the Cheltenham Village and Glenside neighborhoods, the evaluation includes televising all Township-owned sanitary sewer mains, plus cleaning and joint repairs where indicated. The goal is to identify and eliminate sources of extraneous water entering the system, which is nearly 100 years old in sections. This excess water strains the capacity of the sanitary sewer system, which increases the costs for this vital service and can cause sewer overflows that damage property and the environment.
In addition to evaluating the sewer mains, contractors will also televise the private sewer laterals that connect residential, commercial and institutional properties to the Township system. Property owners will receive their own evaluation report. They will not have to correct any damage or deficiencies identified in the report at this time. However, in 2018 the Board of Commissioners expects to adopt an ordinance that will establish the requirements for property owners to repair or replace private sewer laterals found to be damaged or defective. Before finalizing the ordinance, the Township will hold community meetings to solicit public input. (Sign up to receive Township email notifications.)
Contractors are currently conducting the work in Glenside; work in Cheltenham Village was completed at the end of October 2017. They may appear multiple times on the same neighborhood streets during the evaluation process. To ensure their equipment can reach the sanitary sewer system, temporary “No Parking” signs may be posted. No excavation of roads or private property is anticipated for this project.
As the evaluation starts in other areas of the community, those residents will be notified by letter with an approximate time frame for the work. Each Friday, the work schedule for the next week will be posted here. The schedules below indicate the streets where the contractors conducting the sanitary sewer evaluations expect to work beginning on the date indicated. Schedules are subject to change.
Temporary "No Parking" signs may be posted to enable contractors to reach the sanitary sewer system. Signs will be removed from each area as the Contractor completes the work.
*NOTE: Depending on conditions, some work may be conducted between 6PM and 7AM. Generally, contractors will notify residents directly affected by any night work with fliers at their door.
