Infrastructure

Municipal Water and Sewer Services

Most of Pike County does not have municipal water or sewer services, instead utilizing on-site septic systems and wells. Areas that have municipal water services include the more densely populated areas of Milford and Matamoras Boroughs with service extending beyond the town limits into neighboring townships. A number of community associations throughout the county have systems that serve residences. Municipal sewer service with commercial access is currently limited to Westfall Township although there are a few community associations with sewer systems throughout the county.
