Update 11-17-2022:  Sewer Work underway on Fulmer Road

Sewer construction contractor DOLI Construction has started installation of sewer pipes and manholes in Fulmer Road. 

Property owners with house numbers 17 through 113 Fulmer Road and 240 through 264 Fulmer Road can expect a letter from the Township in coming days regarding sewer lateral location. The Township will have a stake placed along the front of each property by a surveyor. The stakes will identify the proposed design location of the sewer lateral stubs. We ask that you do not relocate or remove these stakes.

We recognize that a different location may work better based upon where the plumbing currently leaves your home, or may reduce impacts from excavation to existing landscaping, driveways, or natural features.   DO NOT MOVE THE SURVEY STAKE!  The letter will describe how to contact the Township about setting a stake for your preferred location. 

Other property owners in the project area will receive letters from the Township when work is scheduled in the vicinity of their properties.  Thank you for working with us to make this a successful project!

Plumbers and Contractors That Can Connect Homes To Sewer (listed alphabetically):

The sewer main is an 8-inch diameter pipe in the street.  A 6-inch diameter  line extends from the sewer main to the edge of the road right-of-way.  Your plumber installs a 4-inh diameter line from your home out toward the road and connects to this pipe along the road.

Items to Discuss with your Plumber and Contractor

Have your plumber contact the Township.  We will provide them with the sewer plans that detail the new line in front of your property.

  • Where to connect along frontage?
    • The plans detail a location along the front of your property for the Township Contractor to place your connection.  This can be adjusted.  Talk with your plumber about the ideal location for connection, and if adjustment should be made.
  • Preferred depth to connect.
    • The sewer line may be 10 feet deep in front of your property, but you need less depth to service your home.  We can work with your plumber on depth so he does not need to do excess digging, possible reducing your cost.
  • Service to the basement level.
    • Your plumber can work with you to evaluate if the house basement can be served by a gravity flow connection, or if other options need to be considered.
  • Price should include pumping out existing septic tank(s).
    • The existing septic tank or tanks must be pumped clean.  You should confirm if your plumber will pump out the tank, or if you must directly contract with a septic tank service.
  • Price should include proper abandonment of existing septic tank(s).
    • Both state and local laws require proper abandonment of existing tanks.  After it is pumped clean, the bottom must be broken and the tank filled with aggregate (stone).
  • Price should include restoration of lawn and/or driveway area that are disturbed by the plumbers work.
