Sewer Rates to Increase in Skippack Township

The rising rates reflect an increase from the Lower Perkiomen Valley Regional Sewer Authority.

Sewer Rates to Increase in Skippack Township


Skippack sewer rates will increase roughly $8 per household in 2013, according to the Times Herald.

Township Manager Ted Locker said that the average resident will pay between $93 and $95 for sewer service in 2013 – an increase that reflects raising rates from the Lower Periomen Valley Regional Sewer Authority (LPVRSA).

Locker said that the township would absorb 20 percent of the LPVRSA increase, and 80 percent of the increase would be passed on to homeowners.

The rate increase will be reflected in home owners' April bill – the bills for the fourth quarter of 2012 with previous rates are currently being mailed to customers.
