NO SEWAGE PAYMENTS ACCEPTED AT THE BOROUGH BUILDING!
For Sewage billing name changes, address changes, account balances, Sewage rates, and to set up new sewage service, call the Borough Office. Sewage Bills must be in the name of the property owner and mailed to the property owner.
The Borough adheres to strict sewage lateral specifications as part of the International Building Code and MS4 compliance. If you or your plumber needs to know the specifications, here are the engineering sheets. The Sewage Ordinance outlining the Rules & Regulations, passed by Council in 2013 is 544-13-04.
Manor Public Works Department has a sewer camera for inspecting sewer laterals. If you are having a sewer issue and you or your plumber strongly suspect it may be the main line, please contact the Borough Office to have it inspected. This may save you the cost of hiring a plumber.
a/k/a "Dye Test"
Effective 2013 ALL property sold, refinanced, or obtaining a line of credit, is subject to a CCTV Sewer Lateral Inspection ("dye test"). Dye is no longer used and a camera is sent down the lateral to check the integrity of the line. The cost is $170 made payable to Manor Borough. ($182.50 if a sewage no/lien letter is required) and is valid for 3 years from the date the sewage inspection is "passed". The Ordinance 532-12-01, passed in 2012 and enforcement began in 2013. See Section 9 of the Ordinance.
Turnaround time is 1-2 days based on property owner's availability. Deficiencies are the seller's responsibility to fix. Lien letters are NOT released until the sewer lateral passes inspection.
