Grinder Pumps

Grinder PumpIn certain areas of the township connections to to a sanitary sewer can not be made by a conventional  gravity connection. In these areas, a grinder pump station is needed in order to connect.

A grinder pump station grinds a household's solid waste into smaller particles.  The waste is then lifted by the station and pumped out under pressure to the township sanitary sewer main. 

The Development Services Department has prepared a Grinder Pump Application Packet with information on how to obtain construction approval for the installation of a grinder pump and future reference materials for your proposed grinder pump station.

Additional permits will be required from the Building Department.
