The Public Works office has received several calls regarding leaf pickup. With the hot dry conditions, specific species of trees are shedding their leaves. Residents are encouraged to compost, or mulch-mow the dried leaves. Our annual leaf pick up will not begin until October 17 or 24, based on fall conditions. Once a schedule is set, it will be posted on the website under the Public Works page / FAQ

Cabin Run Residents:
Bucks County Water and Sewer Authority (BCWSA) will be performing upcoming sump pump inspections within the Cabin Run Estates development. Due to high flows at the nearby Cabin Run Sewage Pump Station during rainfall events, BCWSA has requested that Carroll Engineering Corporation (CEC) conduct inspections of basement sump pumps within your neighborhood. CEC intends to conduct door-to-door inspections within the Cabin Run Estates development starting in early June of 2022 and visits should take approximately 15 minutes. During their visit they will need to access the basement area within your home and backyard of your property to observe the sump pump and discharge pipe. All residents in Cabin Run Estates will be receiving a letter from CEC providing additional information on these inspections and contact information should any resident want to schedule an appointment for these inspections or have any questions.
Public Works crews will be working in your development over the next several months performing maintenance checks on the water customer shut-off valves located in the yard at the front of your home. The maintenance checks are being completed in advance of water meter upgrades planned for the summer of 2022. You may experience an interruption of water service while the valve is briefly opened and closed. Crews will confirm access and clearly mark the valve cap with blue paint. If you experience any issues or have questions, please call the Public Works office at 215-766-0189.

Important News About Open Burning..(Because of the volume of inquiries, we have decided to leave this on the website.) Effective February 22, 2012 the Township has officially rescinded its Open Burning Policy and will no longer issue permits. This action is a result of formal notification from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PaDEP) that we are a mandated community under Act 101 and thus any burning is regulated by the state and we cannot supersede its authority. Based on the state law, the only property owners permitted to burn are those considered to be "working farms", defined as the production of agricultural commodities in their unmanufactured state on the premises of the farm operation. Campfires and ceremonial fires are also permitted. Yard waste is NOT permitted to be burned. Yard waste is defined as leaves, grass clippings, garden residue, tree trimmings, chipped shrubbery, and other vegetative materials. Because the Township is a mandated community we are responsible for the enforcement of this Act, and will do what is necessary to ensure that the Township and our residents remain in compliance with it.
