Survey stakes & markings (Lancaster City Project)-June 9, 2015

We have received a number of calls and concerns regarding survey stakes and markings throughout the township. (see pictures below)

(Images are from various locations within the township.)

LancCity Survey Stakes & Markings in LT (Image1)

The stakes are identifying areas where Lancaster City plans on drilling into the ground. It appears that the city is planning on rerouting their water line, and these areas marked are potential locations for the installation of that line.

This is NOT a Lancaster Township project, and based on the (limited) information that we have received, the Board of Supervisors are not supportive of the initial design or proposed relocation.   

The applicant has secured permits to work within the right-of-way, but does not have permission to conduct work outside of the right-of-way on private property. The city is obligated to make repairs to any drilling work conducted.

We will post additional information on our website if and when it becomes available. Should you have any questions regarding this matter, we would encourage you to contact the Lancaster City Public Works Department at (717) 291-4764.

Below is a link to the PDF of the proposed city project.
