Storm Drains

Federal Law now requires us to monitor storm drains. This law also requires us to enforce and fine any individual or corporation that disposes of debris or chemicals that could contaminate the waterways. Common items found in storm drains that cause blockages are:

  • Dirt
  • Dog waste
  • Grass
  • Leaves
  • Paint
  • Pesticides
  • Vehicle fluids
  • Weeds

Please do your part to keep our streams and waterways clean.

Mailbox Check Reminder

As a homeowner, checking your mailboxes stability on a regular basis is a good idea. Is the box leaning? Is the post loose? Does the door stay closed? Is the box properly positioned? View the U.S. Postal Service Guidelines (PDF) for the correct placement of your mailbox.

Keep in mind during the winter snow falls, Lower Macungie Township will not reimburse for mailbox damage due to the force of the snow falling off the plow so now is the time to check that mailbox!  To report damage, please complete the Mailbox Damage Form.
