DEP Mandated Dye Test

*****If your a Homewood Borough Resident and invoiced by Beaver Falls Municipal Authority for Sewage, please see the following Announcement******

Homewood Borough recently passed an ordinance to test for the improper infiltration of water into the wastewater collection system. This ordinance was a result of a mandate from PA DEP to reduce the amount of excess water entering the system from outside sources such as gutters and sump pumps. In an effort to reduce the amount of excess load on the system, which is also causing excess loads on the Beaver Falls Wastewater Treatment Plant, the Big Beaver Borough Public Works Department will be performing dye tests, as part of a corrective action plan approved by PA DEP, on every business and home connected to our wastewater collection system in Homewood Borough. Beginning Monday August 23, 2021 our Public Works Director will start delivering notices to all homes and businesses that are required to have a dye test in Homewood Borough. This ordinance only effects those businesses and homes connected to the Big Beaver Wastewater Collection System. If you have any questions regarding this matter, please contact the Borough office, 724-827-8962.
