Obtaining water and sewer utility service at your site will depend on site location. Municipal water and sewer service is available to most areas within a borough limits, but there are exceptions, so you will need to check with your local water/sewer authority.
Use our zoning maps to find the contact information for your municipality.
If your property is within a municipality that provides water and sewer service, you will need to submit a connection application to the municipal authority that oversees these services. Within these municipal service areas, on-lot septic or wells are not allowed.
If municipal water is not available, you would need to develop a well. Currently there is no permit process for the drilling of a well within the CK-COG region, unless it is specifically prohibited within a borough limits.
If municipal sewage is not available, you will need to have a sewage system designed. The design of this system will be impacted by the results of the on-site deep probe and perc tests.
Identifying how (or if) you will be obtaining water and managing sewage is necessary to the building permit process.
