On July 21, 2015, the Hampden Township Sewer Authority (Authority) enacted Resolution 2015-01 establishing a Stormwater Management Fee (Fee) of $13.25 per Equivalent Residential Unit (ERU) per quarter for all developed properties within the Township. All single family residential properties will be charged one ERU and all Non-Residential properties will be charged multiples of ERUs based on its total impervious surface. An ERU is equal to the average impervious surface of single family residential properties in Hampden Township and is calculated to be 3,534 square feet.
Subsequent to the enactment of Resolution 2015-01, the Authority established a credit policy for Non-Residential properties. Non-Residential property owners may apply to receive a credit for up to 50 percent of the Fee if onsite stormwater management facilities are installed and maintained. An application must be submitted to the Authority to determine if a property qualifies for a credit, however the Authority took action to grant a one-time 50 percent credit to all Non-Residential property owners for the fourth quarter of 2015.
