Engineering

Responsibilities
The Department of Engineering provides for the development and project management of the Township’s Road Maintenance Program (RMP). The RMP is a comprehensive planning tool used by the Department to determine which roads will be replaced. 
 

Additional Services


The Engineering Department also services the Township by providing design and implementation of small to medium roadway, storm and sanitary Capital Improvement projects. All inspections relative to roadway, storm, sanitary sewer and most recreation projects are performed by in-house employees.

Inspections for all Capital Improvement projects as well as the site plans and subdivisions approved by the Planning or Zoning Board are completed by Department personnel. Open Space management, Green Acres purchasing, and land acquisitions are managed by key personnel. 
 
The department also issues and performs inspections for right of way permits. These permits are required any time work is being done within the Township’s right of way (10 feet back from where the curb meets the street). 
In addition, the Engineering Department issues sewer connection permits. Sewer connection permits are required when making any connection with the sewer systems in the Township, whether privately or municipally owned. The cost of the sewer connection permit depends upon whether the property is residential or commercial. Please contact the Engineering Department at 856-424-3203 for additional information on sewer connection permits.
