Welcome to the Brodhead Creek Regional Authority, the largest water Authority in Monroe County, Pennsylvania. The Brodhead Creek Regional Authority serves water to the Borough of Stroudsburg, a large part of Stroud Township and portions of Smithfield Township, Hamilton Township and Pocono Township.
The Brodhead Creek Regional Authority serves water to over 5,400 billing accounts representing a population of approximately 21,000 people in residential, commercial, public and industrial settings. The Authority operates on an annual budget of approximately $4.4 million with an annual capital improvement program budget of $200,000 to $400,000. In the 1990’s, the Brodhead Creek Regional Authority spent over $13.5 million in order to improve its sources of water, upgrade its water treatment facility, and to improve and expand its water distribution system.
The Brodhead Creek Regional Authority produces approximately 2.4 million gallons of water daily, which is 45% of its total daily permitted capacity (5.38 million gallons per day).
The Brodhead Creek Regional Authority's water sources consist of two wells located adjacent to the Brodhead Creek and a surface water intake located in the Brodhead Creek. Some of the water pumped from the wells may originate from the nearby Brodhead Creek and one hundred percent of the water intake is from the Brodhead Creek. It is important for residents of Monroe County communities within the Brodhead watershed to safeguard the Brodhead Creek and its tributaries. Care for the environment and timely responses to environmental threats are directly linked to our ability to maintain a continuous supply of high quality water.
