On January 1, 2022 a penalty of $25 will be added to your sewer bill for any one that has not passed a pressure test.
All property owners must choose a licensed contractor in the Greater Johnstown area and contact them directly in order to start your private sewer lateral replacement and pressure test.
Starting January 1, 2022, GJWA will implement a $25.00 surcharge per month for any property that is not in compliance. An additional twelve-month grace period will be granted until December 31, 2022 only if the property owner has a formal contract with a licensed contractor but is awaiting completed work. A copy of the contract must be on file at the GJWA office. If the contract is not executed during the twelve-month extension period, a retroactive $300 surcharge will be assessed on January 1, 2023.
