Lansdowne Borough is committed to maintaining the high integrity of infrastructure for all of its residents. Through an inspection process, it has been determined that the sanitary sewer in several areas of the Borough are failing and need to be replaced. This project has been planned in order to provide effective and reliable sanitary sewer service to residents. The Borough is set to replace approximately 2,500 feet of sewer pipe in the next 4-6 weeks. This includes new piping, manhole replacement and all necessary appurtenances.
