History

The Rostraver Township Sewage Authority (RTSA) organized under the Municipal Authorities Act of 1945, was incorporated on March 18,1963 as a Municipal Corporation of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The Five Member Board are appointed to a five-year term by the Rostraver Township Commissioners.

In 1972 the Authority began construction of the Sweeney Fellsburg Treatment Plant located on Coal Hollow Road, and the sewer system in the Sweeney Plan and Fellsburg Area.

In 1998 plans began for the upgrade of the Sweeney Fellsburg Treatment Plant from 400,000 gallons per day to 1.5 million gallons per day (MGD), and the installation of sewers for Collinsburg and the remaining areas of Fellsburg, also known as the Pollock Run Water Pollution Control Plant (WPCP).

In 2005 RTSA entered into a Consent Order with the PA Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) for the construction of the sewage facilities in the Rehoboth area to serve Lynnwood, Pricedale and Route 201 North area to Virginia Drive. The Consent Order also required the installation of sewer lines on Rt.51/I-70, the Concord Area, west on Finley Road and the Matty Plan. The Authority met all requirements of the consent order. RTSA is NOT currently under any such mandate or order.
