Welcome to Lancaster Area Sewer Authority

COVID-19 Information

  • LASA remains focused on the health and well-being of our employees and our customers. We are an essential service to the community and we continue to operate during state of emergency, shelter-in-place, and stay-at-home orders. LASA employees that provide your service every day already operate under policies designed to protect our communities’ health and safety, and we’ve enhanced these policies to ensure the continuous operation of our facilities.

    As of November 30, 2020, Lancaster Area Sewer Authority (LASA) will operate with the following modifications:

    • The office at 130 Centerville Road will not be open for public access.
    • We are asking customers to make payments online (without any fees), through the mail, or by utilizing the drop box at our 130 Centerville Road Administrative Office front door entrance.
    • Our Online Bill Pay is an option through our website that accepts payments from credit cards, debit cards, and electronic checks with no fees to the customer. The payments are posted to your account in real time. Staff is available via phone to answer questions you may have.
    • To make a contact-less payment at the office, place the payment stub from your bill and your payment (check or money order, no cash please) in an envelope and put it in the drop box to the left of our front doors. 
    • The LASA treatment plant in Washington Boro will be open to trucked waste customers only. All other visitors to both facilities will be by appointment only. All trucked waste customers and other visitors by appointment must wear masks and comply with social distancing.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Reminder: Personal wipes, baby wipes, cleaning wipes, disinfecting wipes and paper towels should never be flushed down the toilet. Even those that are marketed as “flushable”. These items do not break down in the water like toilet paper does, and they can cause clogs and stoppages. If you run out of toilet paper, we suggest facial tissue as an emergency substitute to toilet paper.
