Mission Statement

The City of Lower Burrell Municipal Authority's mission is to develop and implement comprehensive official plans that provide for the resolution of existing sewage disposal problems, provide for the future sewage disposal needs of new land development; and provide for future sewage disposal needs of the City of Lower Burrell.

Long Term Control Plan

Currently, the Municipal Authority Board of Directors are anticipating the approval of the Long Term Control Plan (LTCP) in response to the Administrative Order for Compliance on Consent (AOC). This is a legal order from the Department of Environmental Protection Agency where all users of the New Kensington Sanitary Authority are required to improve their sewage systems and prevent or severely limit any sewage spilling into the Allegheny River during heavy rain events.

In the interim, the board continues to work toward the LTCP to begin improving the sewer architecture. To date, the Board of Directors, Alpha Engineering, and the Public Works Department continues to identify and prioritize specific inflow and infiltration (I&I) by replacing existing pipe sections and manholes, line (cured-in-place) pipe sections and ensure manholes are kept sealed.
