Is there public water and sewer in Pocopson?

Most Township residents have on-site wells. In a few instances, mostly in or near larger housing developments, water is supplied by Aqua of Pennsylvania.

Most homes in Pocopson have on-site septic systems rather than public sewers. The Chester County Health Department’s Owners’ Manual for On-Lot Sewer Systems¬†provides useful information on care and maintenance of your system.

Pocopson Township residents are required to have their septic tanks pumped out at least once every three years. Please provide a copy of the receipt to the Township, showing the date of septic tank cleanout, the amount pumped, and the name of the hauler. Chester County maintains a list of licensed Liquid Waste Pumpers.
