Onlot Sewage Management (OLDS)
Drumore Township has taken on the responsibility of monitoring existing onlot sewage disposal systems as required by the Department of Environmental Protection through the Township’s Act 537 Sewage Facilities Plan. The process includes locating the individual system, pumping of the tank, checking the condition of the treatment tank, checking the condition of the absorption area and associated components. This inspection is to ensure proper functionality and to protect the surface and ground waters of Drumore Township. The efficient management of this program requires the cooperation of all property owners and residents.

In order to perform the required inspection, all pumping must occur through the access manhole so please make sure that it is accessible. The pumping contractor will pump and inspect your system then complete a Township report. This report will be left on site by the pumper/hauler for you to submit to the Township within 30 days after pumping. All registered pumpers have been supplied copies of the official report forms.
At the end of every three year period, if the Township has not received a field inspection report for your property, a will be contracted to provide this service for the Township and you will be billed accordingly. For those who wish to have a Township inspector conduct the inspection, the Township fee for this service has been set at $125.00. This cost will be in addition to the necessary pumping of the treatment tank.
