Payments after hours can be deposited in the drop box located in the front vestibule of the Municipal Building.

The Borough of Royersford has initiated a program to reduce groundwater and stormwater infiltration into the Sanitary Sewer System. The primary source of the infiltration is through cracks in the sewer piping and illegal stormwater connections. Sump pumps, foundation, floor and area drains, and downspout connections to the Sanitary System are illegal and results in increased treatment costs. The Borough approach to eliminating this problem will be as follows:
- Repair or replace sewers.
- Lining sections of sewers.
- Performing smoke testing to identify stormwater connections.
Beginning in November, 2012, the Borough has contracted with a firm to install a liner in approximately 3400 feet of sewer main in various sections of the Borough. Residents will be given one week notice of when the work will be done on their street with instructions for water use restrictions on the day of installation. All work will be done in one day. Workers will also place door hangers on the resident’s doors 24 hours prior to the work commencing. Please note that the liner will temporarily emit a chemical smell during installation. PLEASE DO NOT BECOME ALARMED; THIS IS NORMAL.
