* * Sewer Billing Notice * *
  • For those residents who have waste water (sewer) through the Township of Spring your waste water bill should be arriving the last week of November.  Due to various problems in the transition process the billing has been delayed.  Going forward, your sewer bills will be received on or around the last week of the month.
  • ACH FORMS - If you would like to have your payment automatically withdrawn from a savings or checking account please download ACH form, complete and sign the form (ACH Form) and return the completed form and a voided check to the Township of Spring Business Office at 2850 Windmill Road, Reading, PA  19608.
  • Once you have completed the ACH form and returned it to the Township, a prenote will be generated during the 1st payment cycle to verify the correct banking information; however no physical payment will be taken directly from your account during this testing process and a physical payment might be needed for payment of this 1st bill.  PLEASE READ YOUR FIRST BILL CAREFULLY TO VERIFY IF IT WILL BE ELECTRONICALLY WITHDRAWN FROM YOUR BANK ACCOUNT OR IF IT IS SIMPLY TESTING THE PRENOTE.
  • The following payment options are available at this time:


  • Check or money order mailed to the Township's lockbox location at the following address:  PO Box 4548, Lancaster, PA  1760
 
  • Pay automatically by ACH - complete and return the downloadable form (ACH Form)
 
  • Cash, check, or money order at any local Fulton Bank Branch
  • If you have purchased Sewer Line Insurance from PA American Water Company (PAWC) please be advised that the Township of Spring has never offered or authorized this insurance and we will not be offering it at this time.  If you are currently paying this fee to PAWC and would like to discontinue enrollment, contact them directly to have it removed from your PAWC bill.  The telephone number for PAWC of 800-565-7292.  This relationship is between you, the customer, and PA American Water Company.  The Township does not have anything to do with this insurance.
  • Questions about Credits:
    It has been decided that to utilize our Township staff most efficiently due to the change in billing and collection processes, ALL CREDITS HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED AS OF NOVEMBER 1, 2012. The possible re-institution of these credits will be evaluated once the billing and collection process is up and running smoothly for a period of time but there is no guarantee that any of the credits will be allowed in the future.  While the Township recognizes that not all water utilized enters the Township's sanitary system for processing, the general consensus of Berks County Municipalities shows that the majority of residents are billed for wastewater based on their actual water consumption and no-one other than ourselves have been issuing any form of credit for these non-wastewater uses due to the excessive administrative burden involved in verifying and processing these credits.
  • If you have received your PAWC bill for November and there is a balance for Waste Water due on it, please pay that outstanding waste water balance to the Township of Spring separately from your payment to the PAWC for water bill.
  • When you receive your first waste water bill from the Township, if you believe there is a discrepancy in your outstanding opening balance, please contact the Township directly to review and discuss your concerns.
During this transition process, please be patient.  Payments and ACH form may have crossed in the mail between the time you have sent them and the time that we are sending out this bill.  Therefore, if you have any questions regarding the balance you see on your bill from the Township of Spring please feel free to contact us at 610-678-5393.  Our phone lines may be busy so again, please be patient, or you may also email your questions, we will make every attempt to respond back to you within 24 hours. - sewer@springtwpberks.org.
