PSN Paperless Statements, Online Bill Pay, and Autopay.

Due to the utility billing transition currently in progress, the payment portal with PSN has been temporarily suspended. This was done in order to prevent customer payment errors during the transition.

If you received your bill from North Fayette Township in March or April, your payment is due to and payable to the Township. Payments may be made by check, cash, or by over-the-counter credit card transactions at the Township office located at 400 North Branch Road.

Sanitary Sewage


North Fayette Township is responsible for the maintenance and repair of the sanitary sewer system. The sanitary sewer system is connected to two different treatment plants. For the majority of residents that live north of Steubenville Pike, sewage is treated by the Moon Township Municipal Authority. All other Township residents are served by Allegheny County Sanitary Authority (ALCOSAN). The sewage portion of your utility bill is calculated on water usage reported by Western Allegheny County Municipal Authority or PA American Water. The minimum monthly rate is $23.00 and is calculated on a minimum usage of 3,000 gallons per month. Usage that exceeds the minimum is charged an additional $9.00 per 1,000 gallons of water used.

The Township periodically does a rate study to make sure that the per-thousand-gallon amount is not too high or low, based on charges received by the treatment plants.

Utility Bill Scam Alert Important Information


North Fayette Township is issuing a warning to customers/residents about possible suspicious phone call activities involving individuals claiming customers’ service will be disconnected for failure to make payment.

It can begin with a received phone call instructing you to call a toll-free number to make payment and to avoid disconnection of service due to non-payment. In some instances, customers may be provided a “reference code” and instructed to go to local drug or grocery stores where they would be approved for an “express payment” on their bills or even instructed to purchase gift cards.

The individuals making and receiving these calls are not North Fayette Township employees, and all residents should exercise caution if someone claims to be with the Township or water authority and asks you to call them for payment of a bill.

You will never be called by North Fayette Township to make a payment regarding your account or asked to go to a local drug or grocery store to make payments. The Township will only contact you for non-payment by US Mail.
