Brodhead Creek Regional Authority (BCRA) is a public non-profit water and wastewater Authority located in Monroe County, PA. The Authority is supervised by a five member Board of Directors, one representative from each of the municipalities which it serves. BCRA covers a large geographic area. The company's infrastructure extends from its treatment plants in the Stroudsburg area to Kalahari Resort in Tobyhanna Township. The company employs 27 full time people.
BCRA provides safe drinking water to over 5,500 billing accounts representing a population of approximately 22,000 people in residential, commercial, public and industrial settings. Additionally, over the past 20 years BCRA has spent over $26 million in order to improve its sources of water, upgrade its water treatment facility, and to improve and expand its water distribution system. BCRA provides public water services to the Borough of Stroudsburg, a large part of Stroud Township and portions of Smithfield Township, Hamilton Township, Pocono Township and Tobyhanna Township (Kalahari Resort).
Brodhead Creek Regional Authority treats approximately 2.6 million gallons of water daily, about half of its total daily permitted capacity of 5.38 million gallons per day.
BCRA's water sources consist of two wells located adjacent to the Brodhead Creek and a surface water intake located on 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.
As of March 2011, BCRA began ownership and operation of the former Stroudsburg sewer plant and serves the Borough of Stroudsburg, Stroud Township, Pocono Township, Hamilton Township and Tobyhanna Township (Kalahari Resort) . Approximately $40 million dollars is being spent to upgrade the wastewater facility to handle growth and greatly improve the quality of water being released back into the watershed. BCRA is a non-profit entity responsible only for the operation of the wastewater plant. The municipalities served by BCRA own and operate their own collection systems (pumping stations, distribution pipes, etc.)
Water and wastewater operations are financially independent of each other.
