PennVest approved an application from Doylestown Township for a low-interest loan to pay for the costs associated with the construction and installation of the Pebble Ridge/Woodridge Sewer Project. Although the township applied for the loan through the state’s PennVest program to fund the initial cost of the sewer project construction, it will be 252 homeowners in the area who pay the loan back.
Doylestown Township supervisors approved the project last summer to bring public sewer to homeowners near Pebble Ridge and Woodridge roads. Individual on-lot septic systems that serve the homes in the area are showing signs of failing and polluting stormwater runoff, leaving no other option but to extend the public sewer line.
BCWSA’s engineer Gilmore & Associates will be putting out bids for construction of the pump station, as well as clearing for the project. Permits for the project from PennDot, PA DEP and the Bucks County Conservation District are being finalized.
The Pebble Ridge/Woodridge Sewer Project is scheduled to begin the summer of 2018.
