    Hydrant testing - Tullytown

    Our crew will be testing hydrants throughout Tullytown today, July 22nd.  Tullytown and surrounding areas may notice discoloration in their water during and after the testing due to the disturbance in the system. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we work to conduct the testing and maintain our infrastructure.  

    Wastewater Treatment Plant Office to Open 

    Beginning July 27th, our wastewater treatment plant office will open its doors on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:00am- 12:00pm. These are the only hours the office will be open. If you are unable to make it within those time frames please continue to follow the instructions listed below to obtain plot plans or submit permit applications. 

    To obtain a plot plan:

    Please mail/drop off a $35.00 check or money order (payable to LBCJMA) at 7900 Bristol Pike, Levittown, PA. 19057 along with the address of the plot plan you are requesting.  Please include your phone # and you will be contacted when it has been placed in the mailbox at the above location for your pick-up. In the absence of a phone #, it will be mailed to the address of the plot plan requested.

    To obtain a sanitary sewer easement permit or waiver:

    Please see the Sanitary Sewer/Water Easement Construction Permit Application under "Forms". Please ensure ALL required documentation is included or the application will be disapproved and sent back to you for resubmittal.   Due to an influx of applications, our review process has increased to 2-3 weeks for issuance of a permit and/or waiver. Missing documentation or improper submittal of the plot plan drawing to scale with ALL required measurements from the true property lines increases the review time.
