The usage fee will apply to any water usage that exceeds 20,000 gallons in a quarter. Monitoring for water that might be used for a pool, gardening or washing a car requires added expenses of monitoring devices as well as the labor intensive process of reading these devices. As a result, the Township has decided to monitor total water usage. For more information please call 610-277-2400.
