Storm Water Management

MS4 Storm water Management Program

In compliance with DEP and EPA regulations, the Borough of Geistown is commencing the first phase of development of its Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4), NPDES Phase II Storm water Management Program. In accordance with DEP and EPA guidelines, Geistown will be developing and implementing this storm water management program in phases over the next five years. The program will involve, among other things, the development of public education and involvement activities, the review and update of the Borough’s storm water management rules and regulations, the detection and elimination of illicit discharges, and the review and improvement of storm water facility operations and maintenance practices.

This page will be used to provide news, information and storm water management data to residents, businesses, contractors and developers as the program is developed. The Borough will also be seeking assistance of the public to participate in storm water management activities such as storm inlet labeling, storm water outfall monitoring, sample collection, and information workshops. Please watch this page for future developments.
