Act 537 requires all water and sewer authorities, including Hulmeville’s, to develop, implement, and maintain a comprehensive official sewage management plan. In order to meet the Department of Environmental (DEP) required timelines for updating the Act 537 Plan, a series of meetings are planned by the Hulmeville Borough Council and Water Authority to prepare and adopt an up-to-date Plan.

One of the key provisions which may affect the Borough residents is a requirement to reduce the inflow and infiltration (I&I) to the sewer system. Failure to do so may result in financial penalties and/or system restrictions.

In order to meet the regulation, the Authority is planning on developing a plan and guidelines to reduce the I&I into the system. The public is welcome to attend and provide input into the Authorities plan. The following is the plan of meetings.

A copy of the Hulmeville Borough proposed Act 537 plan update is available for review.
