Stormwater Program

The stormwater staff develops and implements procedures to carry out the requirements of the City's separate Storm Sewer Permit, NPDES No. PA-0063665 and Section 402(p) of the Clean Water Act (Storm Water Rules) and monitors water quality in the watersheds to ensure the primary sources of water for the public water supply are not degraded. The program maintains, repairs and replaces all storm sewer lines, inlets and manholes. Employees provide emergency standby services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to respond to storm sewer problems. Other program activities include daily inspection and maintenance of the storm sewer collection system and continuing evaluation of the storm sewer systems through daily CCTV inspection program. This program provides support for all street salting and plowing activities.
