Vera Cruz Sewer Project Reaches Milestone Area III

Vera Cruz residents who live in the third phase of the Vera Cruz Sewer project received “hook-up” letters from the Lehigh County Authority this week.

When it came time for an update on the Vera Cruz Sewer Project at last night’s Board of Supervisor’s meeting, Supervisor George DeVault chimed in with a first-hand report.

DeVault, who lives in Milestone Area III, confirmed that homeowners in area III had received certified letters from the Lehigh County Authority earlier in the week, which basically said “you have until July 13 to hook up or else.”

Plus, DeVault said, grinder pumps have been delivered and can be seen in everyone’s backyards.

Then, Upper Milford Township Manager Dan DeLong shared an update on the other milestone areas with the board:

  • Milestone Area I: Only homes has yet to be connected. This is the , DeLong said.
  • Milestone Area II: All but 14 homeowners have taken action to make their connection, he said.

“We had a spell of bad weather and that slowed things down some,” DeLong said, adding that the weather may have also been helpful in identifying potential problem areas.

If Upper Milford Twsp is requiring households to connect to the sewer line to protest Libert creek, then why did they not require every property in this watershed to connect? If you know what flows down hill then why are so many households uphill from Libert creek not required to hookup? All house's west of the Pennsylvania turnpike with failed septic systems add to the polution of Libert creek. Why were they so selective as to who had to have sewers?

If everyone who doesn't need sewer refused to pay up, what would LCA do?
