The Millcreek Township Sewer Authority and Water Authority are municipal authorities formed according to the Pennsylvania Municipality Authorities Act. A municipal authority is a government agency founded by a municipal entity (Millcreek Township) to meet some specific need of the founding municipality. It is governed by a Board of Directors appointed by the founding municipality and is a separate legal and functional entity. A municipal authority, by law, is a non-profit entity, receives no direct taxpayer funding, pays no sales tax and is eligible for low-cost financing and grants that are available for government entities. A municipal authority isn’t controlled by the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission, but rates must be set according to state standards for municipal authorities. We are required to meet all standards for public safety and environmental protection as regulated by state and federal environmental laws.

In this way, a municipal authority is able to run in a cost-effective and efficient manner that results in affordable rates for public services such as the water and sewer services that the Sewer and Water Authorities provide. The Millcreek Township Sewer and Water Authorities are able to work directly with ratepayers (water and sewer customers) to meet their needs and to develop partnerships and cooperative programs with neighboring municipal water and sewer systems. Millcreek Township Sewer and Water Authorities customers benefit not only from our status as a municipal authority, but also our business-like approach to fulfilling our responsibilities.
