Several years ago, Spotted Lanternflies were discovered in southern Berks County, Pennsylvania, not far north of Philadelphia. They probably arrived as an egg mass, stuck to a pallet or similar packing material and were received by an unsuspecting recipient, who did not notice them. Since then they have been breeding and spreading. Spotted lanternflies are known to “host” (feed) on many different hard wood trees that we have in our landscape. That said, they tend to have preferred choices that they feed on, such as Ailanthus, walnuts or grape vines. This means that they will choose certain species first if possible, but settle for what is available.

The proposed Act 537 Sewage Facilities Plan Update is available for inspection by the public for 30 days beginning Wednesday, May 6, 2020 through Thursday, June 4, 2020. This Plan Update provides the planning necessary for new sewage facilities to serve the portion of Lower Southampton Township in the Neshaminy Interceptor Service Area. The alternative selected by the Plan Update is to continue with existing public sanitary system collection, conveyance and treatment for the areas requiring public sewers and to continue to implement the Township’s Infiltration and Inflow Abatement Program in the service area. In addition, the Neshaminy Interceptor is to be upgraded to adequately address the future needs of Lower Southampton Township for a period of ten years.
Written comments on the proposed Act 537 Sewage Facilities Plan Update will be accepted by the Manager’s office at 1500 Desire Avenue, Feasterville, PA 19053 through June 4, 2020
