State plans public water for polluted homes Proposal would extend service in East Rockhill. By Patrick Lester Allentown Morning Call (PA) July 25, 2008Nearly five dozen East Rockhill Township homes would be connected to public water service as part of the state's plan to address decades-long water contamination caused by a probable cancer-causing chemical.

Fifth St., site of a former metal machining and fabrication company blamed in the 1980s for illegally discharging trichloroethylene, or TCE, into groundwater at its property.
The DEP is accepting written comments on the proposal through October and has scheduled a Sept. 15 public hearing to field opinions from residents.
