Looking for assistance in paying to connect the new sewer line?

Representatives from PennVest and USDA will be here to discuss funding options they have available, the qualification (if any) and answer your questions on Monday, June 19, 2023 at 7pm at the West Cocalico Township building.

PennVest has low interest loans through the Homeowner Septic Program available for residental properties.

The USDA has low interest loans and grants through the Single Family Housing Repair Loans and Grants in Pennsylvania available for residental properties.  They do have income limits to qualify for their programs.


We are receiving quite a few questions in regards to the new sewer plant.

If you are already connected to the sewer, you do not need to pay the tapping fee.

The fee is only for new connections.

The sewer will be extended along Route 897 from 425 to 830 W Route 897, to 85 to 165 S Blainsport Road, to 45 to 105 N Windy Mansion Road, to 35 to 75 Rose Drive, to 80 to 140 Blue Lake Road, to 5 to 14 Swamp Church Road, to 105 to 390 Galen Hall Road, to 100 to 285 Resh Road

Everyone who will be required to connect have received letters from the Authority letting them know about the new sewer plant, about the cost of tapping fees, about financial assistance that is available to help them pay the tapping fees and that they will be required to connect already.

Financial Assistance is available to help with costs associated with connecting to the sewer:

1.  USDA Rural Development

2.  PHFA

3.  Lancaster County Redevelopment Authority
