Proposed Pollutant Reduction Plan for West Norriton

What-Goes-In-Here_Ends-Up-Here1-1024x410.jpg
West Norriton Township is required to develop and implement a Pollutant Reduction Plan (PRP) for Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) discharges to Stony Creek, Indian Creek, and unnamed tributaries (UNTs) to the Schuylkill River as part of the 2018 National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) MS4 Individual Permit application to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PA DEP). This plan has been prepared based on the best and most current guidance made available by PA DEP.

In order to develop a PRP, it is important to have an understanding of the Township’s requirements. West Norriton Township is required by the PA DEP and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to reduce sediment pollution from stormwater discharges to surfaces impaired by sediment by ten (10) percent over the five (5) year permit term (March 16, 2018 to March 15, 2023) by implementing projects or Best Management Practices (BMPs).

West Norriton has MS4 discharges or “outfalls” to Stony Creek, Indian Creek, and UNTs to the Schuylkill River, which are listed by the 2014 Pennsylvania Integrated Water Quality Monitoring and Assessment Report (Integrated Report) as impaired for siltation (i.e. sediment).

There is a 30 day comment period for the plan and Cedarville Engineering will be providing a presentation on the plan at the Regular Meeting of the Board of Commissioners on Tuesday, June 13th beginning at 7:00 PM.
