Lower Saucon Authority offices will be closed on Friday, April 14 and Monday, April 17.


Lower Saucon Authority crews will be opening hydrants and flushing mains for two weeks starting April 18th. This is part of our normal preventative maintenance on the system, and is done to remove accumulated sediment.  It is the water system's equivalent of a "Spring Cleaning". Please see our FLUSHING SCHEDULE page on this website for more information.



Lower Saucon Township has declared a Snow Emergency beginning at 11:59 p.m., Monday, March 13, 2017 until further notice.

****The Lower Saucon Authority Office will be closed March 14, 2017. ****

****Municipal Offices and Saucon Valley Senior Center will be closed March 14, 2017. ****


During snow removal operations, parking is prohibited in all cul-de-sacs and dead-end streets to allow public works to effectively clear the streets. In addition, residents are encouraged to remove parked vehicles from ALL roadways to aid Public Works snow removal efforts, and are also encouraged to stay off the roadways and avoid travel unless absolutely necessary.

Our volunteer fire companies ask residents with fire hydrants near their properties to assist them by clearing ice and snow from around these hydrants


As a follow up to our temporary water loss yesterday in University Heights, the LSA field crew will be flushing in the area to remove any sediment that may have settled in the system.
Due to the service disruption, individual household pipes may have 'sucked in' sediment to create dirty water. Usually, running your outside spigot 10-15 minutes will clear the sediment from your pipes.



Water service has been returned to the University Heights area. Our crew did flush the system to remove sediment that may have settled, but if you still have dirty water, run your outside spigot for 10-15 minutes, which should clear up the dirty water problem.


There is a loss of water service right now in University Heights, based on a event on East University Avenue. We have a crew working on it right now. We expect to resolve it quickly. If you get 'dirty' water after the fix, running your outside spigot for 10-15 minutes should resolve the problem.


The Lower Saucon Township Council honored retired LSA Administrator Gar Davidson at the February 15 council meeting with a resolution commending him for his 15+ years of service to the Authority and the Township. Township Manager Leslie Huhn hands Gar the resolution (with Council president and LSA board member Ron Horiszny looking on). Gar then displays the resolution alongside his wife, Sandy.



The Lower Saucon Authority is now on Social Media! We have a Twitter account (@LSauthorityPA) and a Facebook page (Lower Saucon Authority). These pages will be used (in addition to all existing methods) to give out information on service disruptions, boil water advisories, major projects and news. These pages will not be used for "social" purposes, only to send out information that needs to be known by Lower Saucon residents and our customers. Please "follow" us on Twitter and "like" us on Facebook to receive important notifications by means of social media!

Lower Saucon Authority Administrator Gar Davidson retired on January 6, 2017 after 15-plus years on the job. Gar started here on November 7, 2001 after a 31-year career with UGI Gas Utilities. The authority staff wishes Gar (and his wife Sandy) much enjoyment in his retirement with lots of cycling, kayaking, clock-fixing and volunteer work. Here's a picture of Gar with framed articles announcing both his hiring and his retirement:


DEP Acting Secretary Patrick McDonnell, on behalf of Governor Tom Wolf, recently declared that a Drought Warning is currently in effect for Northampton, Lehigh, Carbon and Monroe Counties. This includes the entire Lower Saucon Authority service territory.

A Drought Warning encourages residents to conserve water by voluntarily reducing water usage by 10-15 percent.

Lower Saucon Authority Fleet

Township residents occasionally request earth fill for various home projects. Both the Township and the Authority generate a stockpile of excess spoils materials from construction and repair projects, etc., and are often looking for a suitable sites to re-use it. In addition to soil, the spoils may include some rock, roots, blacktop and concrete, etc.

Requests should be submitted to the Township Zoning Officer who will review for environmental, stormwater management and other issues.  If subsequently approved by the Township Manager,  a permit will be issued defining the application and a letter sent to you.

If you would like to have fill delivered, please complete the form on the "Need Fill" hyperlink to and take it to the Zoning Officer. Delivery terms and conditions are listed on the form and are also discussed in the Public Works section of the Township website.

Thank you and good luck with your project!
