How Can Residents Help?

There are many ways you can help the Township with its stormwater program and participate in activities and programs that will keep pollutants, chemicals, trash, and other waste products out of our waterways. Please read Solution to Pollution from the EPA.

Residents can help by watching 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 out of from storm sewer outfalls. If you see an "illicit" discharge please report it by calling the Township office at 215-297-5656 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. weekdays, or email us. Call 911 during non-business hours. Also, take photos if possible.
