On-lot Sewage Management Program

As part of the compliance with Act 537, an On-lot Management Program is now in place.  This program is to insure the on-lot sewage systems are maintained properly and to help prevent malfunctions from occurring.  Property owners must have their tank(s) pumped and inspected every 3 years (2017, 2020, 2023, etc.).  Property owners are required to provide an inspection report as well as an administrative fee to the Township Office at 725 Kimmerlings Road, Lebanon, PA 17046.  This program is being implemented by the North Lebanon Township Municipal Authority.  If you have any questions, you may contact us at North Lebanon Township at 717-273-7132.
