Please be advised that any pool designed for swimming that can hold 24 or more inches of water requires a building permit.  If the pool is less than 48 inches high it will also require a safety barrier around the pool.  Any pool that can hold less than 24 inches of water does not require a building permit.  Also, the township does have zoning restrictions where pools can be placed.  Please contact the Adams Township building department at 724-625-1827 for more information. These codes are in place to ensure all safety measures have been taken.

Thank you! Have a great and safe summer!



drugdropboxThe Adams Township Police Department has obtained a Drug Drop Box designed to significantly reduce the prescription drugs in American homes that are either no longer needed or outdated. These same drugs have unfortunately become the target of theft and misuse, oftentimes by people who have access to the residence. More and more adults recognize the need to remove these substances from the home legally and safely turn them over to law enforcement for proper destruction.

The drop box is located in the lobby of the main floor of the municipal building located at 690 Valencia Road, Mars, PA 16046.

Residents can drop off unwanted medications Monday through Friday 7:30am-4:00pm.

Items that are permitted in the drug box are prescriptions, prescription patches, prescription medications, prescription ointments, over the counter medications, vitamins, samples, and medication for pets.

Items NOT permitted in the drop box are needles (sharps), thermometers, hydrogen peroxide, inhalers, aerosol cans, ointments, lotions, and liquids.

We recommend anyone dropping off medications scratch off or remove personal information on the bottles.

NEVER FLUSH medications. DO NOT POUR them down the sink or drain.
