Time to Get Excited for the Newly Renovated Palmer Township Community Pool
We are happy to report great progress being made at the Palmer Township Community Pool. The contractor has completed the pool shell and integral plumbing, as well as, the shotcreting process. Electrical and plumbing work inside the bathhouse is currently underway. In the next few weeks the contractor will be backfilling around the pool and working on the pump vaults for the water features. In March they will be working on the splash pad and complete finishing items.
Memorial Day Weekend will be here before you know it. Stop in the Charles Chrin Community Center of Palmer Township to purchase your season passes today!

"Out of sight, out of mind" is the attitude most of us have when it comes to flushing the toilet, running the dishwasher or popping the bathtub drain. All of that dirty water leaving your residence is called "wastewater" which has to end up somewhere. That "somewhere" is the Easton Area Joint Sewer Authority (EAJSA) Wastewater Treatment Plant. From the time that wastewater leaves your house and reaches the Delaware River it goes through a very sophisticated process to cleanse the wastewater before it enters the river. However, the things that enter the system that cause problems can be avoided with your help. Click here to find out how you can help to improve our wastewater system.
Recycle all empty bottles, cans, cardboard and paper. Keep foods, liquids and plastic bags out. Recycle plastic bags at your grocery store, not curbside! Click here for details.

The Bushkill Streams Conservancy is an organization that works to protect the Bushkill Creek. As the township's eastern border this creek is a very important environmental resource in our township. Through the years this creek has also become an important recreation area with the Penn Pump Park and the bike/walking path that parallels the creek from the northern boarder with Tatamy to the south boarder with Easton and Wilson. The protection of the creek is very important and the Conservancy has developed a publication focusing on creating and maintaining riparian buffers along the creek.
