Latrobe Municipal Authority
Welcome to the official web site for the Latrobe Municipal Authority in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. Since its inception in 1942, the Authority currently provides water and wastewater services to the Greater Latrobe area in Westmoreland County.
The water treatment system has a filtration capacity of 6.0 million gallons per day and the wastewater plant is rated to treat 5.0 million gallons per day.
In response to the recent news reports on Hexavalent Chromium (Chromium 6) in drinking water, the Latrobe Municipal Authority (LMA) would like to inform all customers that the LMA is in complete compliance with all federal, state, and local drinking water regulations. Hexavalent chromium is not a contaminant that we are required to routinely sample and that there is currently no federal regulation governing this form of chromium. The Authority is required, however; to test for Total Chromium which is sampled annually and all results have always been in compliance with the federal regulations. Samples for Hexavalent Chromium, along with other unregulated contaminants, are taken quarterly every 3 years in accordance with the Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule (UCMR). The purpose of sampling these unregulated contaminants, as stated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), is "to collect occurrence data for contaminants suspected to be present in drinking water but that do not have health-based standards set under the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA)". The LMA would like to assure our customers that we work diligently daily to provide the best quality and safest drinking water. In addition, we meet all regulations set forth by the Pennsylvania Department of Protection and the EPA. Please refer to our Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) on our website (www.Latrobema.com) which lists all pertinent information on drinking water quality for the Latrobe Municipal Authority
Here are some links to EPA for additional information on Chromium and the UCMR program.
