We provided our approximately 2,200 customers with a little over 152,000,000 gallons of water yearly or 415,500 gallons per day.
All of our water supply is pumped from four deep groundwater wells. Two of the wells are in Heidelberg Township, south of Robesonia; and the other two are in Millcreek Township, Lebanon County. Water storage is provided by two 1.5 million gallon capacity welded steel tanks.
Our drinking water meets all federal and state requirements.

We continue to implement our long-term forestry management program and its enhancement of our area’s ecology. A tangible benefit of the program is it’s generation of revenue through biennial timber sales. The Authority has earned total net revenue over the past thirty years of approximately $1,200,000, enabling us to minimize the need for rate increases (the last of which was over twelve years ago).
