Revised Act 537 Sewage Facilities Plan Available for Public Review
The Township of Bristol, Bucks County, Pennsylvania is in the process of revising its Township-wide Act 537 Sewage Facilities Plan to address the sewage treatment needs of the Township. The Plan calls for capacity upgrades of the existing wastewater treatment plant (the “Croydon Plant”) consisting of the replacement of the grit removal facilities, the addition of a third secondary clarifier, and the addition of two (2) additional chlorine contact tanks. These modifications will result in the expansion of the Croydon Plant from 3.0 MGD to 4.25 MGD to accommodate future growth. In addition to expanding the Croydon Plant, the Township will continue the discharge of flow from other areas of the Township to the Bucks County Water and Sewer Authority and the Lower Bucks Joint Sewer Authority, and the Township will no longer divert flow to Bristol Borough. The Township will continue the removal of Infiltration and Inflow (“I/I”) from the Township’s collection system.  The key implementation and dates are detailed in Appendix E of the Act 537 Plan Update. The Draft Act 537 Plan is available for a 30-day public review and comment period at the Bristol Township Municipal Building located  at 2501 Bath Road, Bristol, PA 19007.  For an appointment to review the draft Plan, please call Deputy Manager, Scott Swichar, at 215-785-0500. All comments on the Draft Act 537 Plan shall be submitted in writing to the Township Manager, at the Township Building or manager@bristoltownship.org  prior to February 19, 2018.

Money Magazine, in its annual Best Places to Live 2016 edition, has named the Levittown section of Bristol Township as the 41st best place to live in America. Levittown is the only Pennsylvania community to make the list. The magazine cited jobs, affordable housing, property taxes, public schools, healthcare, recreational opportunities, and low crime as their criteria for the methodology in determining their rankings.

Council President Craig Bowen said that it was a great accomplishment to be recognized by a highly-regarded national publication such as Money Magazine. “The Township Council made some very difficult decisions to reduce the cost of government and invested millions of tax dollars to improve Bristol Township,” Bowen said. “It’s nice to be saluted nationally.  ”Bowen noted that the Council’s priorities of job creation, improving housing stock, lowering property taxes, and investing in technology to bring the police department up to date to fight crime have clearly paid off.
