As you are aware, the cost of your sewer bill has gone up. Several of you have inquired as to why. The borough is sorry for the increase, but it is out of our control. DCNR- Bureau of State Parks treats the Borough sewage, bills the Borough for that service and controls cost. DCNR has increased the cost that it charges the Borough. We were forced to pass that increased cost on. We encourage you to call and voice your concerns to DCNR by calling 717-787-6640.
Due to recent events with the corona virus, Prospect Borough sewer payments can be made online, via mail or dropped off at the Borough's mailbox across the road to the building's entrance. No late fees will be assessed. Questions or concerns? Please leave a message on the Borough voice mail (724-865-3010) or via email (email@example.com) as those communications are currently being monitored.
Sewage billing to Borough Office starts with January 2018 payment. If you have NOT received your sewage coupon book, please call the Borough office.
