Drought warning persists

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Production (DEP) continues to have Lehigh County (as well as Northampton County and six others) in a drought warning. Read the news release from DEP.

As part of the drought warning, DEP is encouraging a voluntary water use reduction of 10-15 percent. LCA’s mid-summer usage of about 25 million gallons per day is down to 21.5 million gallons per day. Most of that is related to typical seasonal reductions; nonetheless, we thank all residents and customers for their continued efforts to reduce water usage until drought conditions are lifted.
