Water and Sewer
The Hulmeville Municipal Authority is responsible for providing and maintain public water and the sewer system throughout the Borough. The Authority maintains no water storage or pumping facilities, but purchases water from the Bucks County Water Authority.
For more information on the Authority, including information on rates or to read or request a copy of the current Consumer Confidence Report, please visit the Authority's web page.
The Borough has contracts with various service companies to maintain the streets and street lighting. This applies to Borough owned streets and street lighting. State Roads, such as Main Street, Trenton Avenue, and Bellevue Avenue, are maintained by the State.
Salting and/or plowing of Borough streets will begin shortly after the beginning of a snowfall when appreciable accumulations are anticipated. You should park all cars off of the street to make room for the plows.
Whenever snow or ice of 2 or more inches is expected to accumulate, a snow emergency may be declared. During a snow emergency, it is unlawful to park a vehicle on a designated snow emergency route. The following are designated as snow emergency routes (along their entire length): Main Street, Hulme Street, Trenton Avenue, Bellevue Avenue, and Neshaminy Street.
Note that the Borough only clears snow and ice off of Borough streets and the sidewalks of Borough property (i.e., the Borough Hall). It is the responsibility of the person having control (e.g., owner, occupier, or tenant) of every lot or other premises, to clear snow and ice from the property sidewalks. This must be done within 24 hours after the snow has ceased to fall. Failure to do so may result in the Borough having the snow or ice removed, with the cost to be paid by the owner, occupier, or tenant, or be cited and fined up to $1,000 per day.
