The Towamencin Township Public Works Department strives at keeping township roads and parks safe and accessible. They perform a diverse range of duties throughout the township. They are responsible for maintaining 76 miles of roadway, 300 acres of open space, 9 parks, and the general maintenance of police vehicles, township vehicles, equipment and properties.

The Township periodically cleans out ditches, grades shoulders, and trims trees along the roadway in front of your home. All of the work is done within the township right-of-way. Please drive slowly and pay attention to the flagmen and signs when driving through work zones. The Public Works Department functions under the direct management of the Public Works Director, David Hillmantel. 

2024 Road Paving Project

This year, there are 8 streets scheduled for milling and paving. The project is now out for bid. Paving is expected to be scheduled during the summer months to reduce conflicts with traffic and school buses. Roads scheduled for 2024 paving include: Valley View Way, Creek way, Squire Way, Spring Valley Road, Spring Meadow Lane, Knollbrook Drive, Sunny Ayre Way, and Morris Road. See map below of targeted roads.

Stormwater Maintenance

By practicing healthy household habits, homeowners can keep common pollutants like pesticides, pet waste, grass clippings, and automotive fluids off the ground and out of storm water. Adopt healthy household habits. For more information click here.

Sanitary Sewer

Property owners are responsible for the integrity of internal plumbing and lateral pipes on their property. Sewer lines can become blocked due to roots, grease buildup or debris in the pipes. When this occurs, wastewater flow is blocked and may backup towards the first possible outlet. Trees can also be a big problem for sanitary sewer lines.
