July 2016 – The PA Department of Environmental Protection and the Johnstown Redevelopment Authority have mandated that the Borough remove inflow and infiltration from the sanitary sewer lines. The Borough borrowed $15,702,000 from PennVest to finance the Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation Project. To pay back the loans, PennVest advised what amount we need to charge our customers.
As of June 15, 2021 Westmont Borough will no longer be accepting CCTV as an option for Certificate of Sanitary Sewer Inspection.
2022 UPDATE – the surcharge on the Borough sewer bill increased to $145.00 per quarter beginning with the January 2022 billing.
