2018 Allentown Water & Sewer Rate Update

Allentown Division – Monthly Billing, Rates & Lease Info
Most customers in Allentown currently receive a water and sewer bill from LCA four times per year. Converting to the City’s monthly billing schedule and rates will provide additional revenue needed to repair and maintain the water and sewer systems and continue effective operations. However, it will cost about $13 per month more for a typical household. LCA’s Board of Directors expects to make this decision this spring, with implementation tentatively scheduled for summer 2018.
