Why did the Township allow this work to occur?

Simply put, the Township does not have the authority to permit or stop such work. Utility companies have a legal right to access any of their infrastructure located on the owner’s property due to easement rights. Easements are dedicated sections of land on private property which utility companies are allowed to access for the betterment of the community.
