Dye Test


A dye test and video camera inspection are needed for the sale or transfer of all property in the township that has any type of building structure on it - commercial building, house, garage, etc. The dye test is when dye is inserted into the downspouts and checked to make sure no dye is entering the sanitary sewer. The video camera inspection is any commonly accepted method of testing whereby a video camera is inserted into and travels throughout the private lateral sewer line of real property to determine if any illegal storm water, ground water, or surface water is entering the sanitary sewer system. If both tests pass, a certificate of compliance would be issued for the property. For questions about Dye Testing, call 724-693-3107 or email Cheryl Cherico.
