SELINSGROVE, Pa. – LB Water Service Inc., an industry leader in supplying waterworks infrastructure solutions to cities, counties, municipalities and businesses throughout the mid-Atlantic region, has selected its summer intern for 2019 from among 60 applicants.

Interns work full time for 12 weeks over the summer and receive competitive wages.
