PROGRAM PURPOSE & SCHEDULE

In 2004, the Township adopted an on-lot sewage system maintenance program. The purpose of the program is to ensure that all on-lot sewage systems are routinely pumped and properly maintained.  The program requires every property owner with an individual on-lot sewage disposal system to pump their septic system every three years unless the operation and maintenance guidelines for a particular system require a different pumping frequency or a system is exempt from pumping (refer to Chapter 89, Article IV of the Township Code for more information).

Proof of pumping must be submitted to the Township by September 30 of the year pumping is due. As of August 1, 2017, septic haulers are now able to enter pumping data into an electronic County-wide database.  East Bradford Township receives automated notifications whenever a Township property is pumped.  Therefore, as long as your septic hauler reports the pumping electronically to Chester County, property owners no longer have to submit proof of pumping to the Township.

Ultimately, property owners are still responsible for ensuring their systems are pumped every three years.  Therefore, if you have any doubts as to whether we have received proof that your system was pumped, contact Nancy Holland at (610) 436-5108 x105 or nholland@eastbradford.org.
