Old Bethlehem Pike Closed
Old Bethlehem Pike between Rich Hill Road and Greentop Road will be closed on August 14th. The road will be closed for approximately 5 days so that the pipe can be replaced.
Full Road Closure Old Bethlehem Pike
After extensive studies, the intersection of Three Mile Run Road and Park Avenue (Old Bethlehem Pike) did not meet PennDOT requirements for a traffic signal. Instead, a roundabout is recommended as an effective way to slow down traffic and improve safety.
Public water service by Perkasie Regional Authority as part of a Pennvest grant award will begin at the intersection around June 15 immediately followed by roundabout construction. Full road closure is to be in place until mid-September 2023, weather permitting.
Access to all private driveways and businesses will be maintained.

PA DEP Update to Ridge Run PFAS HSCA Site
11/12/2019 Email from PA DEP:
You are receiving this email from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) because you have previously expressed interest in the Ridge Run PFAS HSCA Site located in East and West Rockhill Townships, Bucks County.
This resource account, RA-EP-SEROecb@pa.gov, was recently created as a tool to better keep the community and other stakeholders informed of the Ridge Run investigation and other updates pertaining to the site.
DEP announced today that it has identified a source of perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) contamination at the Ridge Run PFAS HSCA Site as part of its investigation in East and West Rockhill Townships, Bucks County. A copy of the press release and letter to Bergey’s Realty Co. and/or Bergey’s Retread Technologies is available on the project website.
Residents within the Site can expect to see DEP’s contractor surveying the monitoring wells on November 14th.
The monitoring wells will be sampled in the coming weeks.
DEP is also continuing to work with those homeowners with wells testing above 70 ppt to install the in-house treatment systems. We are installing them on a rolling basis and hope to have all of them completed by the end of the year.
Thank you for your continued interest in DEP’s work at the Ridge Run PFAS HSCA Site.
If you receive this message from a friend and would like to be added to the list, please contact RA-EP-SEROECB@pa.gov to be added with the heading “Ridge Run Updates” in the subject of your e-mail.

Illegal Roadside Dumping
It is unlawful to “throw, deposit, place, or dump…upon any street or highway or upon any public or privately owned land without the owner’s consent…”
Littering or dumping trash, furniture, electronics, animal carcasses, grass or brush clippings, construction materials, etc. along roadsides is prohibited. Violations are misdemeanors and punishable by fines of up to $1,000.00 or 90 days in jail, or both.
Residents are asked to be observant of suspicious vehicles and activity. If you witness roadside dumping, note the vehicle description, license plate number and dumping location and call the Pennridge Regional Police Non-Emergency line: 215-257-5104 immediately.
Driveway Pipe Maintenance
While West Rockhill Township maintains the ditches along Township roads, residents are responsible for installation and routine maintenance of their own driveway pipes (Resolution No. 98-07). The Township’s rural roads are vulnerable to flooding and icing when driveway pipes are clogged, crushed, or in need of maintenance, creating hazardous conditions. Chronically flooded or frozen roadways are also subject to rapid deterioration, with taxpayer dollars spent on repairs or costly repaving. Please inspect your driveway pipe seasonally and clear out debris that may be obstructing the flow of storm water through the ditches. If you see any driveway pipe or stormwater issues during a storm event, please take a photo and inform the Township of the location with the photo. We will investigate the problem.
