The Municipal Authority of the City of McKeesport (MACM) currently provides waste collection and sewage treatment services for the City of McKeesport, City of Duquesne, White Oak Borough, Port Vue Borough, Liberty Borough, East McKeesport Borough, Dravosburg Borough, Glassport Borough, Versailles Borough, Elizabeth Township, and North Versailles Township, serving approximately 22,000 accounts representing a service population of about 64,000 people.

MACM is a non-profit organization funded by user charges and capital funds raised through the sale of sewer revenue bonds. The Authority is governed by a five member Board of Directors, appointed by the City, and established to carry out Authority policies.

The McKeesport Sewage Treatment Plant is operated on a twenty-four hour per day basis by a staff of 47 employees, including office personnel. Designed to process 13 million gallons per day at normal flow and 56 million gallons per day at peak flow, MACM is the second largest sewage treatment plant in Allegheny County. The Authority also owns and operates the Duquesne Sewage Treatment Plant, which processes 2 million gallons per day, and the Dravosburg Sewage Treatment Plant, which processes 0.5 million gallons per day.

MACM owns and maintains all the sanitary and combined sewage lines in the City of McKeesport, Duquesne, Dravosburg, and Port Vue, which are made up of 104 miles, 31 miles, and 9 miles, respectively. Known as the Collection System, the Authority has created a collection system department which was assembled to service and maintain all of the pump stations, regulators, interceptors, force mains, and catch basins located throughout the three cities.

MACM has recently assumed the responsibility of providing the sewage billing and collection services for the residents of McKeesport, Duquesne, Dravosburg, Port Vue, and Versailles Borough.
