The Public Works Department is dedicated to providing the essential services needed to maintain the Township's quality infrastructure. Public Works staff manages the maintenance of Township-owned roads, facilities, signage, drainage and storm issues, and snow and ice removal.

DIGGING

Before starting any work that requires digging, remember to call the Pennsylvania One Call System at  1-800-242-1776 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.

You must give at least three days notice before beginning your project. They will notify the phone company, cable company, water, electric etc. to mark the lines. Note that phone and cable lines are often within 6 inches of the surface. Power digging equipment should not be used within 24 inches on either side of the markings.

POTHOLES/ROAD ISSUES/DEAD ANIMALS

Township roads are maintained by either the township or the state. Private road maintenance is the owner's or HOA responsibility. 

If it is a township road, contact office@westvincentwp.org

If is is a state road, contact PennDOT at 1-800-FIX-ROAD

If it is a private road in a development, contact your HOA

If there is a blockage on any road in our township, please contact us immediately at 610-458-1601. 

Dead deer, large animals or endangered species - on a state road, contact PennDOT - on a township road, contact PA Game Commission, Southeast Region at 610-926-3136.

Small dead animals are not retrieved by PennDOT, PA Game Commission or the Township on any road.

RIGHT OF WAY MAINTENANCE

The Public Works crew has the right to enter, use, and maintain the right of way to help improve motorists sight. Right of way is generally the edge of property along a Township road; measured from the center of the road, its width varies from 33 ft - 50 ft wide. Trees, boulders, stones or fences are hazards and should not be placed in the right of way.

SNOW REMOVAL

Please clear an area on the "upstream" side of your driveway entrance to allow space for the snow plow to deposit snow without creating a windrow of snow at the driveway entrance. Depositing or leaving snow in public roads restricts travel lanes and causes snow and ice accumulation.  These actions are prohibited and homeowners are subject to fines.

 

Vehicles must be removed from all on-street parking spaces (including cul-de-sacs). Snow removal around  mailboxes is the homeowner's responsibility. Please refer to Ordinance 109-2001 Declaration of Snow and Ice Emergency for complete policy description. 

 

TRASH ON SIDE OF ROAD NOT IMPEDING TRAFFIC

​The Township does not go onto private property to remove items on the side of the road. We will remove trash items from Township-owned property only. 

TRASH PICKUP AND RECYCLING

​Township residents are required to find their own private trash hauler. If you live in a development with an HOA, check with the HOA to confirm their chosen trash services. Please refer to the Township Code, and search for Municipal Waste Collectors and Recycling Ordinance for complete policy description.

 

Chester County Solid Waste Authority has complete information on proper recycling procedures.

WATER/SEWER

Bucks County Water & Sewer Authority provides water and sewer services to most of the Township. Some developments have public water and/or sewer and are serviced by other providers/townships .
