  • StormwaterPA - Desperately Seeking Stormwater Advice: Jason's Surprise Backyard Pond
    problems with ponding it may help if they were all to install a rain garden or two on their properties I m guessing that like my soil in New Cumberland Jason is most likely dealing with heavy clay which hinders infiltration during these nasty storms we ve been having A great website that discusses stormwater runoff solutions on a residential scale is http www delafleur com 168 Elm I attended the Chesapeake Conservation Landscaping Council s 2011 Turning a New Leaf Conference and listened to a talk by Marcus De La Fleur a landscape architect who had some great ideas for homeowners Meghan Jul 03 2013 at 11 11 AM Thanks for the great suggestion and the great link there Deborah I agree rain gardens are a great help with this sort of problem John Jul 03 2013 at 01 51 PM Please see this link on dry well installation on my property http www ndspro com images stories pdfs drainage flo well installation yard drainage dry well testimonial pdf John john wood Jul 08 2013 at 07 44 AM First I would suggest that Jason discuss this with his neighbors to determine if any changes have been performed in the yards that altered the drainage patterns If alterations have been done correct them back to existing conditions Second if possible install a drain or two and outlet away from the area I suspect the infiltration will not work because of the soils and compaction Third redirect the roof drains to the streets or intall rain barrels This will help to reduce the volume of runoff to the backyards Jason Jul 08 2013 at 04 44 PM Thank you all very much for your feedback I have been trying to get the City Borough to get involved and it is like pulling teeth Mr John Wood Thank you for your feedback when you say install a drain or two what exactly type of drain I asked the city if they I could put a sewer drain in my backyard right in the middle where the pond forms and they said that was impossible Is that the type of drain you are referring to How big of a rain barrel do you think I would need for all of the water it gets about 2 ft deep at the middle of the pond Thank you Gary Peacock Jul 09 2013 at 08 13 AM Jason I recommend to things 1 Eliminate reduce hydraulic pressure on basement walls and 2 Look for opportunities in the watershed to reconnect floodplains with streams If the water flows into your backyard there s got to be a way for it to drain out Talk with neighbors municipal engineer etc about way s to improve natural drainage pathways Look for opportunities up slope to redirect water away from your area Lastly install a bigger sump pump Upstream in your watershed look for opportunities to reconnect the stream stormwater drainage with floodplains and wetlands Floodplain wetlands can

  • StormwaterPA - Secret Swimming Spots: What's the hidden danger?
    Department s 5th district has made it part of his mission to inform swimmers and risk taking divers in this area about the state of the water quality there From the article Vassallo approaches individuals to explain that there are five wastewater treatment plants that dump into the Wissahickon Creek He doesn t put it lightly he basically tells them they re swimming in toilet water The spot which includes a 30 foot cliff used as a diving board seems to have a lot of allure for thrill seekers However the water quality of this site is not as widely known by visitors even though it is undeniably unhealthy for swimmers I feel like Devil s Pool is just an example of this problem and that there are many other locations with similar situations in the summertime Beyond the actions taken by the likes of Sergeant Vassallo what should be done to inform visitors to these illegal swimming sites if anything Comments 1 Lincoln Chase Name Email Website Notify of New Replies Allowed tags b i br Add a new comment Preview Post RSS Feed Tags green infrastructure education Green City Clean Waters schuylkill water quality watershed philadelphia water department
