The Township Engineer is responsible for the design, operation and maintenance of the Township's infrastructure. This includes the 105 miles of Township-owned streets (554 individual streets) the 80 miles of sanitary sewer within the Township's service area, the storm sewer network, the building owned by the Township (Municipal Building, Crawford Pool, Public Works building), and the Township Park System.
Operations & Maintenance Program
The Township Engineer has also developed an Operations and Maintenance Program for the sanitary sewer system. The Township has been divided into 7 zones on the individual sewer sheds. Each year, a different zone is recorded by a mix of human-operated and fully autonomous robotic cameras. Once the defects are known, root control operations are scheduled, repairs using excavating equipment are completed, and sewer segments are lined with new plastic pipes using trenchless technology.
