The BTSA was created by Township Ordinance in 1975 to provide public sewer service to Brighton Township.  Construction of the sewer system was started in September of 1977 and by June of 1980 was almost totally utilized.  In 1983 the two (2) community sewage systems known as Brighton Township Sanitary District No. 1 (Dawson Ridge) and Brighton Township Sanitary District No. 2 (Little Beaver) officially became part of the BTSA system. Although most of the township population is served by the BTSA, there are areas of the Township where public sewage is not available. Please contact the Municipal Building about procedures for obtaining a permit for a private on-lot sewage system.


BTSA does not operate a treatment facility. All flows are treated at the Vanport Township Municipal Authority or Beaver Borough Municipal Authority treatment plants. The Authority operates eight (8) major pumping stations to serve portions of the Township that are unable to flow by gravity. BTSA owns and maintains approximately 71 miles of sewer lines and over 1,800 manholes.
