|Director of Public Works||(215) 368-7602|
The Towamencin Township Public Works Department strives at keeping township roads and parks safe and accessible. They perform a diverse range of duties throughout the township. They are responsible for maintaining 76 miles of roadway, 300 acres of open space, 9 parks, and the general maintenance of police vehicles, township vehicles, equipment and properties.
The Township periodically cleans out ditches, grades shoulders, and trims trees along the roadway in front of your home. All of the work is done within the township right-of-way. Please drive slowly and pay attention to the flagmen and signs when driving through work zones.
The Public Works Department functions under the direct management of the Public Works Director, David Hillmantel.
Street Sweeping Scheduled - April 4 - 8
The Township has scheduled its annual street sweeping next week (April 4 -8), weather permitting. Street sweeping reduces dirt and debris from our air and water systems. It helps prevent the clogging of our storm sewer inlets and reduces storm water pollution.
The contractor will work in the following sequence:
- April 4-5 - Township roads situated between Sumneytown Pike to Welsh Road
- April 6-7 - Township roads situated between Sumneytown Pike to Morris Road
We ask that residents refrain from parking their cars along the roadway, if possible, so that the sweepers can do the best job possible by getting close to the curb line, where most dirt/debris accumulates.

2020 ADA Ramp Replacement Project, Owner Curbing Replacements & 2021 Road Paving Update
In July, residents with deficient concrete for their curb and/or driveway apron and who reside on roads scheduled for road paving in 2021, were notified of the specific deficiency at their address and a reminder of the homeowner’s maintenance responsibility for repair or replacement. Earlier this year, these concrete deficiencies were marked by the Township Engineer. Deteriorating sidewalks were also marked. While the sidewalks are not required to be replaced at this time, it may be more cost effective for owners to do all the needed work at once. Sidewalks may be required to be replaced at a later time, such as at time of sale of a property. Per the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Second Class Township Code, the cost of concrete curb, sidewalk and driveway apron replacement is the responsibility of the property owner. Towamencin Township requires that all marked curb and driveway aprons must be replaced by May 31, 2021.
The Township is holding off on paving roads this year, so that the concrete deficiencies are corrected prior to the road paving. Intact curbing preserves the integrity of the roads, by providing the support on each side of the road. The support of the curbing prevents the spread of the road surface, which can result in drainage problems and possibly safety concerns.
While paving has been pushed back to next year, we are moving forward with the associated ADA ramp replacement work required for the roads scheduled for paving next year. Usually, the ADA ramps are done in concert with the paving. This work is expected to start later this summer.
Roads scheduled for 2020 ADA ramp replacements and 2021 road paving:
|Beth Lane||Village Way|
|Brookside Circle||Dean Dr|
|Deerfield Drive||Finch Run|
|Green Lane||Spect Place|
|Kriebel Road||Candlewood Way|
|Old Forde Way||Dorchester Way|
|Parkview Drive||Norwyck Way|
|Pheasant Hill Road||Cambridge Way|
|Rampart Lane||Winchester Way|
|Theresa Way||Bustard Road|
By practicing healthy household habits, homeowners can keep common pollutants like pesticides, pet waste, grass clippings, and automotive fluids off the ground and out of storm water. Adopt healthy household habits. For more information click here.
Property owners are responsible for the integrity of internal plumbing and lateral pipes on their property. Sewer lines can become blocked due to roots, grease buildup or debris in the pipes. When this occurs, wastewater flow is blocked and may backup towards the first possible outlet. Trees can also be a big problem for sanitary sewer lines.
