  • StormwaterPA - Why
    blessing but population growth has radically altered the natural systems that manage rainfall through transpiration infiltration and gradual runoff into surface waters leading to everything from poor water quality to flooding severe erosion and droughts When the amount of rain falling exceeds the land s ability to absorb it the result is stormwater runoff The volume of runoff and rate at which it flows varies with the intensity and duration of the rainfall and with the type of land surface upon which it falls A short light rain falling on permeable soils might produce little to no runoff while heavy rain landing on an impervious parking lot can produce a substantial amount Without treatment most of the stormwater that runs from the land into our waterways is unhealthy for people and bad for the environment Runoff can carry chemicals metals bacteria viruses organic compounds and other pollutants directly into creeks lakes rivers and streams And stormwater runoff can cause severe erosion and flooding even during a typical Pennsylvania storm Acknowledging the problems stormwater can create has forced us to take its management more seriously than ever before We re working to preserve natural cycles and find innovative ways to mimic the environmental functions that existed before we disturbed landscapes with buildings farmlands parking lots and roads The solution lies in comprehensive stormwater management which offers tremendous rewards to local economies the environment and quality of life Stormwater 101 Managing Runoff We All Play a Role Municipalities Local governments are adopting stormwater ordinances that comply with state and federal laws reduce damage from flooding erosion and combined sewer overflows and improve the quality of residents lives The Building Community Innovative developers use site planning and low impact design techniques to take advantage of natural land features and to expedite permits reduce

  • StormwaterPA - Grass Roots Movement
    Overview Regulations Planning Greening Grass Roots Movement The federal Clean Water Act CWA prohibits the discharge of pollutants into waterways without the appropriate permits Pennsylvania s Stormwater Management Act better known as Act 167 MS4 Program Chapter 102 Erosion and Sediment Control Requirements and NPDES Permit Program for Stormwater Discharges Associated with Construction Activities are amongst the Commonwealth s methods for meeting the runoff related requirements of the Clean Water Act For all practical purposes though implementation of stormwater management efforts in Pennsylvania occurs at the community level because individual municipalities are ultimately responsible for adopting zoning ordinances subdivision and land development regulations and other programs that keep their locality s runoff under control Contrary to the common perception properly planning for stormwater can accomplish this goal while speeding the permitting process saving on construction costs and resulting in profitable projects that enhance a community in multiple ways Regulations Planning Greening An Ounce Of Prevention An entire suite of stormwater best management practices BMPs have been developed techniques that range from preserving natural systems and minimizing disturbances to alleviating unavoidable impacts when they do occur through various structural means An ounce of prevention truly is worth a pound of cure

  • StormwaterPA - Clean Your Water
    we actually act It s no longer up for debate it s an established fact that PREVENTING runoff from flooding our cities and towns polluting our sources of drinking water and threatening human health and the environment is far less costly than dealing with the aftermath of serious storms We re starting to realize the same holds true for the smaller more frequent rain events that cause runoff which is why there s such a major push across the nation to get stormwater under control Clean Your Water has been designed to provide the information and educational resources to help bridge this gap It s the place where individuals organizations businesses and local governments can come for answers Clean Your Water is a space to share lessons learned and to offer up materials for others to use You re not alone in your desire to help others get it and there s no need to reinvent the wheel Choose your pathway and look around Use what you find Share with us other informational sources that you ve enjoyed And keep up the great work of creating a more informed populace that s motivated to act Resources for Your Region Would
