Hampden Township’s sewer system consists of approximately 180 miles of collection lines, 23 pumping stations, force, mains and an annual budget of $10.3 million.
Residents and commercial property owners who are experiencing a sanitary sewer blockage or backup are reminded to notify the Wastewater Treatment Plant at 761-7963 prior to calling a plumber. Staff will verify if the sewer main located in the street is open. If necessary, an inspection of the six-inch lateral from the sewer main to the curb right-of-way will be scheduled during normal business hours.
In addition to maintaining the operation of the wastewater treatment plant in accordance with both federal and state regulations, the Wastewater Division staff handles maintenance tasks to include:
Flushing, cleaning, and televising main lines
Air testing, and sealing when necessary, joints
Televising and inspecting laterals
Removing roots from laterals within the right-of-way
Inspecting manholes and replacing manhole risers
Assisting the Maintenance Division with lateral and mainline repairs
