At its August 9, 2011 meeting, the Indiana Township Board of Supervisors unanimously decided that those property owners who benefit directly from having a fire hydrant accessible to their property should be billed a Hydrant Fee for that added fire protection. In the past, these fees had been charged directly to Indiana Township by the four water authorities (Fox Chapel, Hampton-Shaler, Harmar, Oakmont) and were paid from the Indiana Township General Fund. The Township of Indiana asked DCDBA to include this charge on its sewer bill and collect the Hydrant Fee for them. DCDBA's function in this process is to act as the billing agent and collect the fee quarterly for Indiana Township. Questions regarding the hydrant fee should be directed to Indiana Township at (412) 767-5333.
Charges that appear in this block on the sewer bill can be either for the Subtraction Meter Fee ($1.00) and/or the surcharge ($15 per month) for those customers whose wastewater is pumped by the Bigler Drive Pump Station.
