Upper Milford Township

LCA provides wastewater collection service to about 800 residential and commercial properties in Upper Milford Township, including areas surrounding the Borough of Emmaus and the village of Vera Cruz. In the Vera Cruz area of the township, the sewer system is designed as a low-pressure system, and property owners must maintain a grinder pump to pump wastewater into the system from each property.

The wastewater that is collected through this system of pipes is then discharged into our Western Lehigh Interceptor System and transported downstream to the City of Allentown for treatment at the Kline’s Island Wastewater Treatment Plant.
