CORONAVIRUS UPDATE – SEWER BACKUPS
Communities around the US are experiencing an increase
in sewer backups.  
Please DO NOT FLUSH PAPER TOWELS, BABY WIPES,
NAPKINS, CLOROX WIPES AND LYSOL WIPES into the
sewer system.  In most cases, the clog will develop on
private property.  Property owners will be responsible for
all costs associated with unclogging the sewer line on
private property.  If you develop a clog, please call the
Maidencreek Township Authority at 610 926 4173.  We
will come out and determine which side the clog is on.  If
the clog is between the main sewer line in the street and
the cleanout, the Authority will take responsibility to have
the line unclogged. If we can determine the cause was
due to wipes being discharged to the public sewer
system, the homeowner will be contacted immediately.  
Please be a responsible user of the public sewer system
during this emergency situation.  It will be greatly
appreciated by our staff!

Wolf Administration Provides Guidance for Buildings
Closed During COVID-19

Harrisburg, PA – As businesses in counties enter the
Yellow Phase of the state’s reopening plan, the
Pennsylvania departments of Environmental Protection
(DEP) and Health (DOH) are encouraging owners and
operators of dormant buildings to flush building water
systems prior to reopening. Buildings that have been
closed or used less frequently for an extended period of
time may experience problems with water quality due to
stagnation.   

“As buildings have been shut down or used less frequently
as a result of COVID-19 mitigation efforts, building water
quality degradation becomes a silent but serious issue,”
said DEP Secretary Patrick McDonnell. “Legionella,
pathogens, lead, and disinfection byproducts can result
when water sits for an extended period of time, which may
lead to health issues.”

In the days leading up to reopening, the following
recommendations and considerations should be made,
and a team of facilities staff or a water management
consultant will be needed to prepare the water system.

“As we carefully and intentionally determine which
businesses are safe to reopen, we must also make sure
they reopen in a manner that is protective of employees
and customers,” said Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine.

Buildings that have been closed or used less frequently
should consider the following measures:

Develop a flushing plan:
•        Identify where the water enters the building, all taps
(faucets, shower heads, water fountains), and water-using
devices (dishwashers, ice machines)
•        Remove any potential cross connections, such as
hoses connected to spigots, to prevent backflow into
plumbing systems
•        Remove aerators when possible
•        Flush the entire building
•        Flush cold water lines before hot water lines
•        Flush the building zone by zone, beginning where the
water enters the building and moving outward towards the
distal ends
•        Flushing time will vary based on building size; a
temperature change or chlorine smell may be used as
indicators that fresh water has reached all fixtures within the
building
•        Clean faucets, shower heads, and other fixtures
•        Inspect and conduct necessary maintenance on
mechanical equipment such as water heaters, boilers,
storage tanks, backflow prevention devices, etc. using
manufacturer’s instructions
•        Consider developing an ongoing water management
plan to maintain high quality water at all times.
