EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY!!

ANY delinquent water accounts that we have to post the property for payment will be charged a 25.00 fee for each property.  Additionally, if we post your property for termination and payment is not made by the specified date and your water service is terminated there is a $25.00 fee for the water to be turned off and a $25.00 fee for the water to be turned back on.  All of these fees, along with the amount of your delinquent bill, will need to be paid in full for water service to be turned back on!!  NO EXCEPTIONS will be made!!  When the bills are mailed out, if your do not pay your invoice by the due date listed on the card you receive, then a delinquent notice will be mailed to you.  If you fail to pay by the date given on the delinquent notice, then your property is scheduled to be posted.  Once your property is posted the $25.00 posting fee will automatically be added to your account.  These fees have been implemented to help defray the cost of additional, unnecessary work of the office staff and water operator.

HOW TO REPORT STREET LIGHT OUTAGES

 

Ensuring streetlights come on each night is very important to the safety of the community and can help reduce crime.

Street light outages are most commonly reported in the fall months, as the days get shorter and customers can see that a light is out on

their way home from work. 

When a customer report is called in to First Energy the utility line crews and troubleshooters are responsible for making streetlight repairs as quickly as possible - typically within 3 days.

 

TO REPORT A STREET LIGHT OUTAGE

Call:  1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877) and say "streetlight"

after the greeting.

 

WHEN REPORTING AN OUTAGE, LET THEM KNOW:

* Your name and phone number (in case they need more information).

*Address where the streetlight is located (nearest house or business address and the nearest cross street).

*Number on the utility pole.

*What is wrong with the streetlight (damaged pole; broken light fixture; light is off at night, on during the day, or flickers).

SPRING TOWNSHIP WATER AUTHORITY RATE INCREASE !!!

 

This notice is for all Spring Township Water Authority Customers.  Effective January 1, 2018 your rate will increase from $4.25 per 1,000 Gallons to $4.75 per 1,000 plus you will still have the $10 base fee as well.  This will amount to approximately a $5.00 to $7.50 increase on your bill for the average customer.  However, it will depend on the amount of water you use as to your increase.  The above calculations are based on average consumption.  This increase is due to the increase in costs for the Authority to operate and maintain the water system and provide its customers with the best possible quality of water.

  Last rate increase was January 1, 2015.

**THE SAFEST CITIES IN PENNSYLVANIA 2017**

SPRING TOWNSHIP RANKED NO. 4!!

 

Pennsylvania has some of the safest cities in the country and look who checked in at number four in the entire state of Pennsylvania!!  With a population of 7,612 people, Spring Township only had One Violent Crime reported and 23 property Crimes making Spring Township, Centre County as a very safe place to live.  Much of our reported crime comes from internet or phone scams, theft of credit card or identity theft which is all generated from outside our area.  We must all remain vigilant.  For a crime to occur, just two things need to happen; Someone has the desire to commit the crime and they are given the opportunity to commit it.  Your job is to reduce the opportunity by practicing good crime prevention tips.  We know there will always be someone out there with the desire to take what you got.  The Supervisors and Staff of Spring Township are proud to be ranked as one of the safest cities in Pennsylvania and would like to thank YOU the residents as well as our Police Department in helping make Spring Township a safe place to live, work and enjoy raising a family.

HELP TAKE A BITE OUT OF LYME

 

Pennsylvania has led the nation in confirmed cases of Lyme disease for three straight years, and for the first time, deer ticks have been found in all of its 67 counties, the state Department of Health reports.

 

Lyme disease is called the "THE GREAT IMITATOR" because its symptoms mimic many other diseases.  For instance, patients with Lyme disease are frequently misdiagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis and various psychiatric illnesses, including depression. 

 

The best defense again tick borne illness is to avoid contact with ticks in the first place, but when that's not possible, take the following steps - know where ticks live (near the ground, in leaf litter, grasses, bushes and fallen logs) and dress defensively - wear shoes, sock, long pants and long sleeves and tie back long hair and wear a hat.  Light colored clothing can help you spot ticks!  Use repellent on exposed skin and periodically inspect your clothing and skin for ticks!

PA ONE CALL

 

Spring Township Encourages Pennsylvania Residents to Dial 8-1-1

Before Digging to avoid hitting underground electrical cables

and other utility installations.

Homeowners and contractors should contact 8-1-1 three days before beginning a job to be connected to the Pennsylvania One Call Center, which then will notify the appropriate utility companies about the work being planned. Professional locators are then sent to the requested digging site to mark the approximate locations of underground lines with flags, paint or both. Every digging project even something as simple as installing a mailbox, building a deck or planting a tree warrants a call to Pennsylvania 8-1-1 before the first shovelful of dirt is turned. Waiting to start a project until lines are located and marked makes good sense, because striking a single line can lead to injury, cause outages, and result in costly repairs or fines.
