Public sewer for Darlington Ridge is billed quarterly in arrears by East Bradford Township based on the number of bedrooms. The 2021 rates are $1,132.64 per year ($283.16 per quarter) for three-bedroom units and $1,317.08 per year ($329.27 per quarter) for four-bedroom units. Billing takes place in January, April, July, and October for the previous 3 months. All payments must be made with a check made payable to “East Bradford Township.” Bills are due within 30 days of the billing date. Balances not paid by the due date will be assessed a penalty of 6% of the balance due and accrue interest monthly at 10% per annum. Past Due balances not paid within 180 days will be forwarded to Portnoff Law Associates, Ltd for collection. Upon completion of Darlington Ridge and settlement of all units, East Bradford Township will consider the sale of the Darlington Ridge public sewer system to Aqua PA. The rest of the public sewer system was sold to Aqua PA in 2018, just prior to the approval of Darlington Ridge.
BILLING SCHEDULE & RATES
Public sewer is only available within certain areas of East Bradford Township (view the map), most of which are close to the Borough of West Chester. West Chester treats the sewage for East Bradford Township and bills Aqua PA for that service. Aqua PA then bills the residents who are connected to the public sewer service monthly along with the water service. There are three areas within East Bradford Township that have private sewer service systems: The Mews at Radley Run, Brandywine River Estates and Brandywine Overlook. The Mews at Radley Run is billed by the Radley Run Country Club. Brandywine River Estates and Brandywine Overlook are billed by the Little Washington Waste Water Company, a division of Aqua PA.
SALE OF PUBLIC SEWERAGE SYSTEM
In December 2017, the East Bradford Township Board of Supervisors approved an Asset Purchase Agreement with Aqua Pennsylvania, Inc. for the sale of the pubic sewerage system. Aqua will assume responsibility for the public sewer mains located within sewer easements and streets (not private lines to individual houses/units), the sewer pump stations, and sewer billing and collections. The Township and Aqua obtained approval from the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission and closing occurred on December 12, 2018. Click here for the letter to public sewer customers.
