Due to damage from the recent storms and flooding the Catasauqua Pool will be closed for the remainder of the Season.
Our neighbors in Coplay and Nazareth have offered the following:
Coplay Pool will honor 2018 Catasauqua Season Passes and
Nazareth will charge Season Pass holders $1(per day) for entry to their pool.
Construction to begin on Race St. Bridge over the Catasauqua Creek has been postponed to SPRING 2019
RECYLCING: Recently the Borough has received several calls about recycling being mixed with the trash the Borough Manager has spoken with JP Mascaro regarding this matter. They use a conventional trash truck to pick up single stream recyclables the only thing that is placed in the truck are recyclables and they are then hauled to a sorting facility where they are separated. The trash is picked up in different truck and is hauled to the landfill. I have included a video below that shows the process. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVPaU9-xd54
An excerpt from Lehigh County District Attorney's Memo:
