Below find some quick information about a few current issues and projects in Worcester Township. Please call the Township Building at (610) 584-1410 for additional information on each project or issue.
Green Hill Road Culvert
Current status (September 29, 2017) - In early 2017 an inspection of several bridges and culverts throughout the Township revealed a structural problem with the culvert located in the 1700-block of Green Hill Road. As a precautionary measure the Township restricted traffic across the culvert to a single lane in March 2017.
Since this time the Township has seen to the design, permitting and bidding needed to replace the culvert. This work is now ready to proceed, and for the project duration this portion of Green Hill Road will be closed to through traffic. The road will be closed beginning Thursday, October 5, and we expect that the road will remain closed for approximately four weeks.
Local fire and ambulance personnel, the Pennsylvania State Police, and the 911 dispatch center have been alerted to the closure. The Township has also notified the Methacton School District and the United States Post Office.
Thank you again for your patience as we work to keep our community’s roadways as safe as possible.

Army Reserve Base
Current status (October 19, 2017) - The US Army has received test results for seven properties near the former North Penn US Army Reserve Base. The Army tested for the presence of PFOS and PFOA, chemicals that were used during firefighting training exercises at the property many years ago. Of the seven properties tested, five properties tested below the US Environmental Protection Agency's heath advisory limit, and two properties tested above this limit. The findings were reported to the property owners and to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). Given the very high levels of PFOS and PFOA reported at the two properties, the Army re-tested these wells, and the re-tests confirmed readings above the health advisory limit. The Army is now conducting tests, or seeking approvals to conduct tests, at an additional 25 properties. As the owner of the North Penn base, the US Army is responsible for any clean-up that may be required by DEP.
