Warminster Township is required to develop and implement a Pollutant Reduction Plan (PRP) for Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) discharges to the Neshaminy/Little Neshaminy, Pennypack Creek, and Southampton Creek as part of the 2018 National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) MS4 Individual Permit application to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP).
The Plan must indicate how the Township will reduce sediment pollution from MS4 discharges to streams impaired by sediment by ten (10) percent and total phosphorous pollution from MS4 discharges to streams impaired by nutrients by five (5) percent over the five (5) year permit term (March 16, 2018 to March 15, 2023).
This Plan has been prepared and Warminster Township is now accepting written public comment on the PRP, beginning on July 25, 2017 and extending through August 24, 2017, and written and verbal comments from the public at the Board of Supervisors’ public meeting scheduled at 7PM on August 17, 2017. In addition to the link (click here), the PRP is available for public review weekdays between the hours of 9 AM and 4 PM at the Township Administration Building (401 Gibson Avenue, Warminster, PA 18974). All written comments must be sent to the attention of Katherine McGovern, Executive Assistant, at the Township Administration Building (401 Gibson Avenue, Warminster, PA 18974) or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Comments, including comments submitted by email, must include the originator’s name and address.
