Public Notice 

 Due to minimal rainfall in 2022, the City of Lock Haven Water Department is asking that all residents and customers do their part in conserving water. We are recommending reducing water consumption by 10%. 

 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.

A total of nine signalized intersections on Route 150 and one on Route 120 will see improvements as part of this project.
