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 firstname.lastname@example.org prior to February 19, 2018.
