Ways You Can Protect Our Water Supply
When rains come down the storm water flows over roofs, across lawns, and down driveways, sidewalks, and roads before entering stormwater drains. The water entering those drains go directly to our water supply, along with all the dirt, debris, and chemicals it picked up along the way. In Schwenksville Borough, that water could contaminate the Perkiomen Creek and its tributaries. Protect our water and natural areas by helping to reduce the contaminants in our stormwater. Start with the following tips, and visit the Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy http://www.perkiomenwatershed.org and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection at http://www.depweb.state.pa.us/portal/server.pt/community/water/6008 for more information.
- Use the Montgomery County Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program to dispose of hazardous household substances, such as used motor oil, cleaning supplies, and paint.
- Use pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides properly to prevent excess runoff.
- Pick up after pets and dispose of their waste properly. If left in your backyard or at the park, pet waste can be carried into the storm sewer system or a stream by stormwater runoff.
- Instead of washing your car in your driveway, take it to a car wash, where the water is treated and recycled.
Schwenksville Borough operates a municipal storm water system that is permitted by the Pennsylvania Dept. of Environmental Protection. The permit requires that the Borough:
- Continue public education and outreach activities
- Notify and solicit public input/involvement regarding management of the system
- Monitor, test and eliminate illicit discharges from outfalls in the system
- Control construction site stormwater runoff through enforcement of ordinances
- Ensure that all post-construction stormwater improvements in new or re-developed areas are built as designed and are operated and maintained properly
- Implement a pollution prevention program for municipal operations.
For more information or to provide public input please contact the Borough Manager at email@example.com
