Frequently Asked Questions - General

Highland has been combating the I&I (Infiltration & Inflow) problem for longer than any other local sewer system. Our experience has shown us that NO municipal sewer system in the Greater Johnstown area has lowered its flows to the PaDEP mandated limit (625 GPD/EDU) without requiring homeowners to pressure test their full buried pipeline system.

Highland's secondary, and remotely located Lloydell Reservoir (Beaverdale Reservoir and/or 5-Mile Reservoir) IS NOT open to the Public.

However, Highland's main reservoir (Beaverdam Reservoir) along Route 869 in Summerhill Township IS OPEN to limited Public access and use through a co-operative management arrangement with the PA Fish and Boat Commission.
