If you believe your bill was computed incorrectly, either as a result of incorrect water consumption data, the use of an incorrect water account number, or the estimated amount, you should make the first quarter payment when due and submit a request for an adjustment in writing. Requests can be submitted by mail, email to HSAINFO@hanovertownship.com, or dropbox. If your request involves your water account number, you should include a copy of your water bill showing the account number. If your request involves consumption used to calculate your bill, please include a summary of water bills or copies of your water bills from the last five (5) quarters. If, in fact, an error was made in computing your bill, charges for the second, third, and fourth quarter will be adjusted.

About the Authority
The Hanover Sewerage Authority was created by the Township in 1956 to provide wastewater collection and treatment service within Hanover Township. This action was taken in response to ongoing failures of septic systems and to plan and provide for future treatment needs. Planning and construction began in the mid-1950s. The plant began operation in November of 1961.
At the present time, approximately 99% of the Township is sewered. The Authority also provides service to contiguous residential areas of Morris Plains, Morris Township, Parsippany-Troy Hills, and to industry in East Hanover.
The collection system consists of approximately 80 miles of pipe varying in size from 8 inches to 36 inches in diameter. Within the Township, this system is operated by the Authority. The majority of this system was constructed by the Hanover Sewerage Authority in existing developed areas of the Township in the 1960s and early 1970s. As new areas of the Township were developed, they were connected to the system.
The Treatment Plant is located on Troy Road in Whippany. The plant originally provided secondary treatment for 1.5 million gallons of wastewater per day. Between 1976 and 1979, the plant was expanded to provide for a capacity increase to 3 million gallons per day and to meet newly revised criteria for secondary treatment. The plant was further upgraded between 1989 and 1992 and currently provides level 4 advanced treatment plus dechlorination and has a capacity to treat an average of 5 million gallons per day. This capacity is sufficient to serve complete development of the Township based on present zoning.
