Tewksbury Stormwater Basin  - Notice of Construction

The project was financed in part by a grant from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Commonwealth Financing Authority ARPA PA Small Water and Sewer Program

Construction will begin on improvements to the stormwater basin behind the Township Municipal Building the week of July 8, 2024. 
Construction is anticipated throughout the summer with major construction work anticipated to end by mid-September.  Miscellaneous intermittent work may occur thereafter through the end of May 2025.  The work is being done concurrent with work at another location in the Township, so you may not see work being done at this location every day.

WORK HOURS

The contractor may generally work from 7:00am to 8:00pm Monday-Friday, and 8:00am to 4:00pm Saturday.  Sunday and nighttime work is not anticipated but may be required in the case of urgency. 

SPECIAL NOTICE TO 188 TEWKSBURY CT, and 81, 85-87, 93 & 99 SCHOENECK AVE

The primary work entrance will be from the Newport Ave entrance to the municipal building.  However, it is anticipated material may need to be transported to the east end of the basin using a municipal stormwater easement on the property at 188 Tewksbury Court with existing municipal access along the east side of the basin at the rear of the properties at 81, 85-87, 93 and 99 Schoeneck Ave.  Any disturbance to vegetated/landscaped areas within municipal easements, right-of-way, and property will be stabilized and restored with grass cover.  Any shrubbery, trees, or other landscape/vegetation will not be replaced in kind as these types of features inhibit municipal access for maintenance and repair.  That said, reasonable care will be taken to minimize disturbance in access from Tewksbury Ct.  Please contact the Township office (610-759-5341 x3) to discuss any specific concerns related to construction access described herein.
