Update 10/25/19 - County Line Road Area Infrastructure Improvements in conjunction with Area A Flow Transfer tentative construction schedule announced! Click here for construction schedule
Mobilization for the portion of the sanitary sewer and water main replacement work from Sprinbrook to Latchstring Lane via Sherwood Lane is tentatively scheduled for early January 2020. The schedule for the installation of the pump station at the end of Springbrook Lane has not yet been established but will be posted as soon as it becomes available.
10/21/19 - On October 28, 2019, Horsham Township Council will be holding a public hearing for the grant of an easement to the Authority through Clearbrook Park for the purpose of constructing a new 8” water line. The water line will improve water flow in the system by “looping” the water mains in Linda Lane and Diane Avenue to Clayton Road. The meeting will be held at the Horsham Township building at 1025 Horsham Road at 7:00 PM.
About this project:
10/15/19 - Notice to proceed for the Authority’s Area A Flow Transfer Project and the first phase of the County Line Road Area Infrastructure Improvement projects has been issued. The project is scheduled to be ongoing throughout the winter with completion anticipated in late April/early May 2020. An anticipated construction sequence will be posted in the coming weeks.
9/2019 - In order to minimize construction impact to residents, the first phase of the County Line Road Area Infrastructure Improvements project is being performed in conjunction with another project known as the Area A Flow Transfer.
Water main replacements will be occurring in the areas depicted in the map below. If you are currently connected to the water mains being replaced, your water service will ultimately be disconnected from the existing main and reconnected to the new main. This work will take place entirely within the Township right of way and does not involve disturbance to your private property. There is no cost to the affected property owners for this work, but when the time comes for water service to be switched over to the new main, there will be a short interruption in service, in the range of 1-2 hours. This work will occur toward the end of the project, and will be coordinated directly with the affected property owners at that time.
With this water and sewer construction project access to properties via County Line Road may be affected. The Area A work area involves installation of water and sewer mains in the following streets: Springbrook Lane, Maple Ave from Springbrook to Sherwood Lane, Sherwood Ln to Latchstring Ln, and Latchstring Ln to County Line Rd, and then continuing west on County Line Rd. Work is expected to begin within the next several weeks and will be ongoing for a period of approximately six months. Road closure is not anticipated, but traffic controls will be in place and lanes will be restricted as necessary throughout the project area. As always, access to local traffic, emergency services and school buses will be maintained.
Horsham Water & Sewer Authority is planning an upgrade to its water infrastructure in the areas depicted on the conceptual map.
This will include a combination of water main replacement, relining and additional water main installation to improve water quality and flow. Please be aware that the precise route for the proposed new water main shown in pink on the map has not yet been determined. As part of the design work on behalf of the Authority, surveyors working for the Authority’s consulting engineering firm, Gilmore & Associates may be present in the proposed areas of work.
