It would seem the Lower Bucks County Joint Municipal Authority’s extensive program to remove trees blocking sewer lines, isn’t moving fast enough. That is the only explanation provided for Levittown homeowners, who were flooded with raw sewage last month.
On June 9th, a Lower Bucks County Joint Municipal Authority crew was busy clearing a blocked sewer line when the sewage moved downstream and hit another blockage, causing raw sewage to back up into three Goldenridge homes.
“LBCJMA is not liable because it had no knowledge of the second blockage”, according to Vijay Rajput, LBCJMA’s Managing Director.
State Representative, D-141, Tina Davis is set to meet with the homeowners and the authority, later this week.
To offset homeowners costs for repairs, Bristol Township Councilman Craig Bowen is planning a fundraising event for Saturday July 28th, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Indian Creek pavilion on Emilie Road in Bristol Township.
Who should pay?
