HYDRANT FLUSHING NOTICE
The Cornwall Borough Municipal Water Department will be flushing approximately 185 fire hydrants throughout the water system starting Monday, August 8, 2022 until we are finished with the entire borough area. The flushing will take place during the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The flushing is required to clean the water systems and check the operation of the hydrants.
For more information about the hydrant flushing, click on Water/Sewer Tab.
Thank you for your patience as we continue to maintain the water system.
Street Light Outages
If you notice a streetlight is not on at night or flickering or just not working please contact the Borough Office and we will report it to Met-Ed online. We ask that you gather information before reporting to us…Address of pole or nearest address, nearest intersection and pole number. Residents may also report themselves online by going to https://www.firstenergycorp.com/service_requests/report-lighting-problem.html.
WATER/SEWER RATE UPDATES
The water rates paid by customers will not change for 2022.
Sewer rates will increase by a flat rate charge of $10/EDU per quarter for Capital projects. This same charge is currently paid as part of the water rates to offset projects that are slated for the future.
Council added this rate since the Borough was informed by North Cornwall Township that the Dairy Road Pump station needs to be completely overhauled to accommodate the future demand to the station.
The exact cost, or start date for this project is unknown at this time. The Borough pays for a portion of the operation and maintenance of the pump station on a yearly basis. The sewage collected here in town flows through this pump station to the City of Lebanon Authority Sewage Treatment Plant.
