LCA provides regional wastewater collection service to municipalities in western Lehigh County through a system of large interceptors and relief facilities running from western Lehigh County to the City of Allentown for treatment at the Kline’s Island Wastewater Treatment Plant.
Municipalities connected to this regional network include:
Borough of Alburtis
Borough of Emmaus
Borough of Macungie
Lower Macungie Township
South Whitehall Township
Upper Macungie Township
Upper Milford Township*
In most cases, we charge the municipalities for their connection with our interceptor system, and the municipalities run their own sewer network. Municipalities own and operate their own sewer systems and send bills to residents and businesses according to their own municipal rate structures.
* In Upper Milford and Weisenberg townships, LCA is the designated wastewater service provider. In these townships, we own and operated the sewer network and send bills directly to the residential and commercial customers that are connected to our system.
