Water & Sewer
The Strasburg Borough Authority provides public water to all of Strasburg Borough. The original water system for Strasburg Borough was constructed in 1896 and consisted of a water source known as the “old springs” which are located along the Strasburg-Paradise Township line southeast of the Borough. The original distribution lines within the Borough were gradually extended in the years following construction of the original system. In addition, a second water source was added which is known as the “new springs.” In 1956, a water storage reservoir and a 12-inch transmission line were constructed to the system to meet the growing demands of the Borough. Line extensions have continued to this day which have required the Borough to add additional springs and wells to meet the demand for water. Public sewage disposal is offered to Strasburg Borough from the Suburban Lancaster Sewer Authority (SLSA) via the Strasburg Borough Authority, which meters and bills its customers in Strasburg Borough. SLSA currently provides service to portions of Lancaster, Pequea and West Lampeter Townships and to Strasburg Borough. All checks in payment of water and sewer charges should be made payable to the STRASBURG BOROUGH AUTHORITY.
