Ejector Pump Replacement
Addendum to Rules & Regulations Book

RS&W Management and Board of Directors would like to clarify the purpose and scope of the letter that was recently sent to all members. In our efforts to address, what will be, a future necessity regarding the safety and operation of the new Low-Pressure Pump System (LPPS), the letter sent out may not have accurately addressed the scope of the new amendment to our Rules & Regulations. In light of the confusion over the letter’s verbiage, some changes have been made to the E3.a rule’s wording. These changes will hopefully clarify who is directly affected by this amendment.

Requirement of the permit and type of pump, as indicated in Rule E12.

E12. All sewage ejection pumps in The Hideout must be installed in the structure and / or immediately adjacent to the structure and must be using either a Barnes Indoor Unit OGVH 2022 L or Barnes Outdoor Unit OGVH 2022 CE to be compatible with RS&W system requirements. Basin capacity must be 50 gallon.

Please see below how the rule may affect you:

Retrofit Pump (direct grinder ejection pump inside/adjacent to the structure installed during the Infrastructure Replacement Project) – Future replacement of the pump requires a permit and the purchase of a compatible pump for the LPPS.

Ejector pump to EcoTran Basin (indirect pump inside/adjacent to structure) – Future replacement of the pump requires permit to confirm system will NOT be affect by replacement of pump in house.

EcoTran Basin (rock covered basin at the street, maintained by RS&W) – EcoTran basin customers are NOT affected by this rule. Ejector Pump Replacement- Addendum to Rules & Regulations Book 

E3.a All Pumps located inside the home or immediately adjacent to the structure, must obtain a non-monetary permit, approved by RS&W, prior to purchase or replacement of the pump. ALL retrofitted direct grinder ejection pumps, installed by RS&W during the Infrastructure Replacement Project, MUST be compatible with the new Low-Pressure Pump System (LPPS).

As we enter in October 2018, the third and final stage of our Sewer and Water Infrastructure Replacement Project is winding down. There are a few more pumps to install, but the majority of the work remaining is paving and property restoration. Unfortunately, with the copious amount of precipitation that has fallen throughout the duration of Stage 3, restoration has been delayed. Our contractor is doing their very best to restore as many properties as possible, during the small windows of dry weather.

The same is true for the paving program. Because of the historic rainfall, paving has been delayed. As soon as the weather cooperates, the paving program will start on the Northwest side of the lake and progress south hitting all the side streets encompassed in Stage 3. The paving crew will then conclude on the East side of the lake. During the paving portion of the project there will be road closures and detours in place. Please keep in mind that paving moves along quickly, and road closures may change several times throughout the day. It is advised to travel at a reduced speed (less than 25mph) in the construction zones.
At this point, any house that does not have a Control Panel or a Retrofit Pump installed is Non-Compliant, meaning an EcoTran pump basin was installed at the street, the wire was run to the nearest corner of the house or to the location of the electric meter and water and sewer services have been shut off. A letter of notification, advising of the Termination of Services for Non-Compliance is sent out to all Non-Compliant property owners. To reinstate water and sewer service, the Control Panel must be installed by a licensed electrician at your expense.

If you have any questions, please call the Project Management Office at (570) 698-6162 option 2.

Miller Road Detour: To avoid detours and delays in the south section of the Hideout, closest to the Main Gate, please utilize the Miller Road detour, highlighted in purple on the map to the left.
Heading southeast on Lakeview Dr toward PA-590 W, Turn left onto PA-590 E (0.3 mi), Turn left onto Miller Rd (2.2 mi), Turn left onto Avoy Rd (0.3 mi), Turn left at the 1st cross street onto Northgate Rd to enter the south section.
