SHREWSBURY TWP.-- Shrewsbury Township will advertise an ordinance for adoption in April that would make it unlawful to residents who are connected to the public sewer to discharge sump pumps, rain spouts or other groundwater or rainwater into the sewer system.

Shrewsbury Borough, which provides public sewer to some township residents, recently adopted the law and has asked the township to do the same.

Once the law is adopted anyone in violation could be penalized.
