SNOW EMERGENCY
HANOVER TOWNSHIP DECLARES SNOW EMERGENCY Hanover Township – Northampton County announces a Snow Emergency effective at 6:00 a.m. on Wednesday, February 7, 2018 until Thursday, February 8, 2018 at 12:01 a.m. Snow Emergency Information: Hanover Township has found it necessary to declare a “Snow Emergency” due to the potential for a snow event Wednesday. Parking on all Township streets is prohibited and vehicles may be ticketed ($75 fine). (§172-29 of the Codified Ordinance reads: Whenever a snow emergency has been declared it shall be unlawful for any vehicle to be abandoned or parked, on any public highway/street.) Again, the Township has declared a Snow Emergency as a result of an impending storm with significant snow/ice forecasted. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated. Tickets can be issued once the Snow Emergency (parking ban) goes into effect and in some instances prior to the snow actually starting to fall or snow plowing operations commencing. Snow emergencies are enacted to protect personal property (vehicles parked on roadways) and driver safety (plow operators). Watch the Township Website & Facebook Page for additional information.

Cable Companies
Cable companies (RCN, Service Electric, Verizon, Comcast, etc.) have a legal right under the Telecommunications Act of 1996 (https://www.fcc.gov/general/telecommunications-act-1996) right to lay their facilities (lines) in Public Right-of Ways.

Water Main Breaks
We have had numerous water main Breaks in the Township due to the extreme cold snap. More than likely these will continue has the ground freezes and thaws. If you begin to notice discolored water, please contact the City of Bethlehem Water Department at 610.865.7074. South of 22 contact Utilities Inc, dba Westgate Water at 1.800.638.0262. In some instances it might take some time for them to locate the leak. It may require the water that is leaking to bubble to the surface. Once the break is identified and repaired you may continue to have discolored water until the system is flushed by usage.
