SANITARY SEWER LINE MANHOLES AND MANHOLE COVERS
MATSF field personnel routinely perform inspections of manholes throughout the system and video inspection of the sanitary sewer pipes. In performing these tasks, a number of manholes have been identified as being buried as a result of landscaping activities. Covering manholes, thus making them inaccessible, is prohibited by MATSF regulations and by Township ordinances. These ordinances provide for significant monetary penalties that may be assessed to property owners that have covered manholes. MATSF personnel and their contractors must have ready access to manholes not only for performing the required assessment activities, but to provide prompt response to any emergency blockages that may occur.
