Easements must be kept clear. The Department of Public Works provides routine maintenance and emergency care as they work to maintain the township's wastewater collection system. This work is routinely done in the utility easements throughout the township and its service areas. Access to an easement should be kept open and free of obstructions.
A property owner may not hinder the work of the Public Works Department by limiting access to its wastewater collection system or appurtenances:
If obstructions are not removed by the property owner they will be removed by the township so that utility work can be completed.
All costs involving repair of hard surfaces, removal and replacement of fences, sheds, walls, trees, shrubbery, hedges, and other obstructions shall be the responsibility of the property owner as referenced in township Code.
