    of the state s Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System MS4 regulations by helping communities and property managers identify ways to improve their stormwater management techniques and treat stormwater with well with more respect The Perkiomen MS4 Partnership is a collaboration of municipalities in Montgomery Bucks Lehigh and Berks Counties and the Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy Current municipal partners include Colebrookdale Borough East Greenville Borough East Rockhill Township Franconia Township Hilltown Township Lansdale Borough Lower Pottsgrove Township Lower Providence Township Lower Salford Township Marlborough Township New Hanover Township Perkasie Borough Perkiomen Township Salford Township Schwenksville Borough Sellersville Borough Upper Milford Township Upper Salford Township Washington Township West Rockhill Township and Worcester Township The Perkiomen MS4 Partnership is focusing on private property management because a growing number of property owners are now responsible for privately held stormwater management systems Stormwater basins and swales are vital components of these systems but their functions are often misunderstood even by well meaning property managers Improper maintenance of stormwater systems can lead to flooding problems and water quality issues as well as problems for groundwater supplies throughout the region Stormwater can cause devastating physical impacts to streams by flushing lawn chemicals liquids that drip from vehicles and wash off parking lots and roads pet and animal wastes into local waterways But rainwater or stormwater is also a critical resource for replenishing local ground water supplies Many local communities depend on well water for day to day water needs Even communities with public water supplies often use deep wells as their water source On average a household in our region uses about 75 gallons of water per person per day Throughout 2011 the Conservancy will be available to meet with homeowner s associations and other large property managers to discuss current stormwater management techniques options for improving water quality and increasing recharge to local groundwater supplies The Perkiomen MS4 Partnership will also focus on helping residential property owners learn about raingardens and how every yard can help replenish local water supplies Also included are 10 Things I Can Do To Protect My Water Please contact the PWC if you would like more information regarding stormwater management and or non point pollution in your community The PA Department of Environmental Protection PADEP initiated the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System MS4 program to promote greater understanding of stormwater as a valuable resource and to improve overall stormwater management practices If you are interested in learning more please contact Crystal Gilchrist at the Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy at 610 287 9383 or check the website www perkiomenwatershed org TEN THINGS I CAN DO TO HELP PROTECT MY WATER 1 Pick up after your pets and keep livestock out of streams Pet and animal wastes can carry harmful bacteria and diseases They contaminate creeks and require expensive water treatment for human uses 2 Never dump anything down a stormdrain Stormwater systems do not filter pollutants from stormwater so anything that goes down the stormdrain will end up in the nearest creek 3 Maintain
