Logo YCUAYCUA will be conducting a conventional valve turning exercise program to maintain the quality and longevity of all water system valves June - August. Being able to operate these valves at a moment’s notice is extremely important.

Conventional water system valve turning consists of closing and then opening each valve in a specific neighborhood. During this process, customers might experience discolored water and sediment for a short period of time.

Find out when YCUA will be in your area this summer for valve turning.

Noxious Weeds GrassThe Ordinance Department investigates complaints about tall grass.

Help keep your neighborhood looking beautiful by mowing your lawn regularly. Grass must be kept mowed below 7" for all residential, developed, subdivided and landscaped areas of the Township, including business districts. The 7" height requirement includes fence lines, garden edge lines and building perimeters. A well kept lawn adds beauty and curb appeal to your property and contributes to a clean and sanitary environment.

Beginning on Memorial Day each year, the Township will mow tall grass on private property and invoice the property owner for the cost of the work plus a $50 administrative fee. Once a property is mowed under enforcement, it remains on a watch list until someone else takes responsibility to maintain it.

Preliminary work has begun for a reconstruction project on N Harris, however construction won't begin until 2018.
