NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN by the Board of Supervisors of West Nottingham Township of a thirty
(30) day public comment period to an Official Act 537 Component 2M Sewage Facilitates Planning
Application to be submitted for approval by the West Nottingham Township to the Pennsylvania
Department of Environmental Protection. The Plan proposes the use of on-lot-sewage disposal
systems. The planning area for the Plan is the entire area of West Nottingham Township, located in
Chester County, Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania Sewage Facilities Act, commonly referred to as
Act 537, requires municipalities to prepare and maintain an up-to-date plan to assess current and
future needs for wastewater collection, conveyance and treatment facilitates; and to evaluate
alternatives to meet future demand. The Plan was prepared after the sewage needs within the
Township were assessed based on the West Nottingham Township Planning Commission’s studies,
which concluded that the most viable and efficient method to facilitate Act 537’s requirements is
through the implementation of on-lot-sewage disposal systems. Several wastewater collection and
treatment alternatives were evaluated. The recommended alternative proposes the use of on-lot
sewage disposal systems.
A full text copy of the Township’s proposed Act 537 Component 2M Application is available for
public examination without charge or may be obtained for a charge not greater than the cost
thereof at the Township Building. The 30 day public comment period will begin February 12, 2018,
and end March 13, 2018. Written comments are invited from the public and must be submitted or
postmarked to the Township Municipal Building to Candace Miller, Township Secretary/Treasurer,
100 Park Road, P.O. Box 67, Nottingham, PA 19362, by March 13, 2018 in order to be included in
the Plan for the PA DEP’s review.
