Approximately 6,900 owners of Radnor properties, which are connected to the public sewer system, are required to pay an annual sewer service charge (or rent) to Radnor Township. Sewer rent is not paid by mortgage companies.
Annual sewer rent revenues fund the maintenance of the township's sanitary sewer system, such as clearing clogged underground sewer pipes, replacing and upgrading older pipes, and for making rental payments to the Radnor-Haverford-Marple Sewer Authority, which coordinates the regional flow of sewage from neighboring municipalities.
The 2018 sewer rent rate is $6.49 per 1,000 gallons of water used by a property in calendar year 2017. The minimum annual sewer rent is $65. Properties with private well water are charged $649 per year unless a meter connected to the well documents more or less than 100,000 gallons of water used the prior year. Properties with on-site sewer systems are not subject to the sewer rent.
