How You Can Help With Stormwater Runoff

There are many ways you can help Solebury Township with its stormwater management program to keep pollutants, chemicals, trash and other waste out of our water ecosystem.

The documents attached below offer many helpful tips: The Townships Today article outlines how to create stormwater-friendly lawns and gardens, and the "Solution to Pollution" brochure from the EPA addresses common stormwater issues around the house and garage.

Residents can also help by being on the lookout for:

  • Sediment leaving a construction site via stormwater runoff
  • Spills (chemical, gas, oil)
  • Illegal dumping activity into streams or storm sewers (PLEASE CALL 911 FIRST)
  • Dry weather flows from outfall pipes into streams (at least 72 hours after a rain storm)

Residents may be the first to recognize illicit discharges dumping into storm sewers or coming from storm sewer outfalls. If you see an illicit discharge please report it by calling the township office at 215-297-5656 or email us through the website. (Take photos, if possible!)
