The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) moved Clinton County to a drought warning. Following the guidelines laid out in the Drought Contingency for The City of Lock Haven and Suburban Water Authority, all customers are asked to reduce their water consumption by 25%.

Some examples of conserving water are to avoid letting faucets run, reduce showering times and frequency, use dishwasher or laundry appliances with full loads, avoid watering landscapes and washing vehicles. 

More information regarding conserving water can be found on the City’s website at lockhavenpa.gov/dept/public-works/water/savewater/ where you can calculate your water footprint and learn how you can help conserve water.

The City will be conducting Leaf Pick-Up this season from 12:00 Midnight until 8:00 A.M. using the sweeper route schedule.

            This program will be in effect from Monday, November 9, 2020 through Thursday, November 20, 2020.  Residents are requested to sweep their leaves onto the streets on the day before their street is scheduled for sweeping.  That day is listed on signs on each street indicating that parking is prohibited from 12:30AM to 6:30AM.  This will be allowable only on these dates.  Anyone putting leaves onto the streets before or after these days could be cited and fined.  Residents are encouraged to use this method rather than bagging leaves.  Leaves should be placed in the gutter or between the curb and sidewalk.

            For those unable to sweep leaves to the street, bagged leaves will be picked up on Monday and Tuesday, November 9 & 10, 2020 and Monday and Tuesday, November 16 & 17, 2020 prior to 8AM.  Bags must be placed at the curbside for pick-up.  Bags must weigh no more than 50 lbs.

            Sunset Pines leaf pick-up has been scheduled for November 18-20, 2020, daylight hours.  Residents are requested to rake their leaves onto the shoulder of the road on these days only prior to 8AM.
