    Meetings:     4th Wednesday 7pm 


Are you using wipes and paper towels to clean and disinfect? Disinfect BUT DON't RISK A SEWER BACK UP! Toilet paper is made to disintegrate. Everything else should go in the trash, because its NOT flushable and won't breakdown. Wipes and paper towels will tangle into a big lump and block sewer lines. If a pipe in your neighborhood is blocked, sewage could back up into your house which means a very expensive $$$ mess for you.

BTMA payments cannot be accepted at the Bern Township office window, only the BTMA window. 
When the office is closed BTMA payments can ONLY be made at the drive-thru window of Vist Bank, located on Rt 183 across from WAWA.  Or you can mail your payment to the BTMA address

STARTING IN SEPTEMBER 2017 meetings will be 4th Wednesday at 11am. Not 7pm

  • Urgent Request!
    Are you cleaning up after cats or kids?
    Please do not throw "flushable" cat litter or disposable wet wipes
    into your toilet.

    These items may be "flushable" but they do not dissolve or disintegrate.
    They cause blockages and other problems in sewer systems,
    and these problems are very expensive to fix,
    which will cause the cost of your sewer rates to increase.
For more information click on the two links
in the navigation bar on the left side.
These two links:
Flushable to FATBERG  and Trash NOT Toilet
will take you to external links of articles in the "The
New York Times".

                           So please be considerate and throw the  "flushables" into the trash,
                           or these items will wind up costing you and other sewer users a lot of money.
                           Thank you.
Many thanks to  Tom Krick  for his years of service to the BTMA Board.
