Important Announcements

For those effected by the Boil Water Advisory,

the Advisory was lifted at 9pm Sunday September 11, 2022.

         Your water no longer needs to be boiled.


A boil water advisory had been issued for all of Ira Township and Cottrellville Township as of 7am Saturday due to a major main break in Cottrellville Township that caused the system  to have very low to no pressure in areas.  As a measure of extreme  caution we issued a boil water advisory.  We then flushed water throughout the Township on Saturday and pulled water samples Saturday at 9 a.m. and Sunday at 3 a.m.  The procedure to lift the boil water advisory is to pull two sets of samples (18 hours apart)  and check for bacteria.  All samples that were pulled throughout our distribution system as well as Cottrellville Townships system came back good ( no bacteria detected).  Therefore the boil water advisory was lifted as of 9 p.m. Sunday September 11th.




On the tax due date, Wednesday, September 14, 2022,

the Treasurer’s Office will be open from 9:00am to 3:00pm for in-person payments.

  Payments after 3:00pm, can be dropped off in our secure drop box or made online through the Township’s website through midnight. 

Items in the drop box by 9:00am on the 15th will be processed for the 14th date.
