About Our Sewer System
The sewer system in Red Lion Borough consists of 8 sewer pumping stations and 22 miles of gravity and force mains that flow all sewage to Springettsbury Township’s sewer collection plant.
Red Lion installed the sewer system in 1962 and had their own sewer treatment plant until 1974. At that time, the expense of upgrading the plant to meet new regulations was too cost-prohibitive. The sewage flows were then connected to the York Township Mill Creek interceptor main. Currently York Township, Dallastown, Yoe, and Windsor Township utilize the Mill Creek interceptor main.
Red Lion Municipal Authority (RLMA) staff completes most maintenance, repairs, televising and cleaning of the sewer system. RLMA owns and operates a Vactor truck and camera trailer. At times, RLMA assists neighboring townships with maintenance of their sewer systems.
Starting in December 2016, RLMA will be having a company clean and televise the entire sewer system. This project should last approximately 150 days. The name of the company is Mr. Rehab. Please have patience if work is being done on your street or one of the main streets in town. There will be a need for Mr. Rehab staff to enter into the sewer right-of-way on some customers’ properties to complete their work. Please understand that this is a necessity for them to do a thorough job. If you have any questions, please call the office at 717-244-3475, Option 3.
