What's New

Berwick Borough Rate Increase

The Berwick Area Joint Sewer Authority board members voted on September 23, 2015 to increase the Berwick Borough residential/commercial sewer rates by $3.50 per month/per EDU.  Any Berwick Borough BAJSA account that had paid one lump sum in the beginning of the year will be receiving a billing in the 4th quarter for the difference with this increase.  Also, anyone that is signed up with ACH or has automatic on-line bill pay with their bank will have to adjust their records accordingly.

 

Salem Tappage Fee Penalty

Effective August 2013, Salem Township residents whom hold an outstanding tappage fee balance will be charged a penalty of 1.5% per month.  If you have any questions regarding the above, please feel free to contact us at (570) 752-8477.
