Thank a Public Works crew member this week for maintaining your local parks, roads, streets and sewers while ensuring that you enjoy all that your community offers you.

The Public Works Department will start their SUMMER schedule on May 28th (day after Memorial day). The schedule will be 6:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

In preparation for the implosion of Martin Tower, contractors will be conducting fire hydrant operations in the area of Eaton and 8th Avenues on Wednesday May 15, 2019. Due to the increase in the volume of water being used, City of Bethlehem water customers in the area may experience loss of pressure and/or discolored or cloudy water. This activity will occur again on Sunday May 19, 2019 during the implosion event.

If you experience discolored or cloudy water we advise that you do not let your water run continuously. Rather, run your cold water faucets only for a few minutes at a time until it begins to clear up. Repeat this step every hour or so until the water runs clear. We recommend that you do not run your hot water while you are experiencing discolored or cloudy water; this will only draw sediment into your hot water tank. While the water remains safe for consumption, you should consider avoiding activities such as washing clothes.

Any loss of pressure and/or cloudy water should be a short-term condition. If the water does not clear up in a few hours or you have an emergency involving your water service, please contact Water Control at (610) 865-7077. Thank you for your patience in this matter.

Welcome To Hanover Township

Here you will find valuable information about the Township and its services. This website was designed to make it easier and more efficient for residents and other visitors to interact with the Township. We hope you find the site's content to be both interesting and informative.

Hanover Township was formed from the southern portion of Allen Township by decree of the Bucks County Court in 1798. Its geographic limits at that time included the present area plus that which comprises Hanover Township, Northampton County, and the area immediately south of the current Township to the Lehigh River. This original territory was retained until 1812 when Lehigh County was established and the Township was divided; approximately two-thirds of its area went to Lehigh County and one-third remained in Northampton County.
