The water and sewer department plays a vital role with the quality of life in Sandy Township. Public health is always the upmost concern within the department. Regular testing is done on both the water system and sewer system that we serve. The department is contantly monitoring water usage amongst the various entry points in the distribution system. When an overage is detected, the crew is out locating and fixing the problem, usually without any interruption of service to the customer base.

The department maintains a water pumping station, a water storage tank, multiple home meters, all of our various entry point master meters, 20.5 miles of water lines, a class "D" rated sewage treatment plant servicing the I80 exit 97 area, 4 sewage pumping stations, and 24.7 miles of sewer lines.

PA1 call marking is also handled by this department. CALL BEFORE YOU DIG ON ANY PROJECT, it's the law and it protects not only the lines below ground from becoming broken, but also yourself from injury and liability for damage.
