"On May 27, 2015, the Columbia Borough and Municipal Authority sold the sewer collection system in the Borough to Lancaster Area Sewer Authority (LASA). LASA is now responsible for operations and maintenance of the sewer collection system."
LASA trucks and personnel have been seen around town, checking sewer pipes, over the past few days. The following photos show activity on Avenue J last week.
Shown below is a photo taken today on Barber Street. A resident, whose Grinnell Avenue property abuts Barber, is apparently experiencing sewer problems. A private contractor was enlisted to excavate the backyard, and LASA personnel were present today to inspect the connection to the main sewer line. Interestingly, the residence did not display a permit, and it's not known if one was applied for - the responsibility being that of the homeowner and contractor. We also wonder if the contractor received permission from the borough to barricade the block of Barber between Washington Street and Eleventh . . .
