General Info 

The Public Works department is regularly repairing and maintaining approximately 120 miles of Township roads. This includes street cleaning, line painting, snow plowing, permanent repair of roads, as well as patching and sealing.

Upper Macungie Township complies with the Municipal Separate Store Sewer System (MS4 Requirements). The Environmental Protection Agency mandates that the States comply with National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) requirements. Pennsylvania DEP required municipalities having a population of 10,000 to obtain an Individual Permit for its storm water system. The Township has adopted the Act 167 Storm Water Control Plan to control volume and quality of storm water runoff. DEP Chapter 102 regulating erosion and sediment control for new construction has also been adopted by the Township. The program goals are to control water quality and ground water recharge. Requirements include providing information to residents regarding what they can do in this effort. These items include cleaning pet wastes, eliminating oil and fluid leaks from your vehicles, proper use of chemicals and fertilizers, soil erosion and sediment control.
