MS4 Updates

July 3, 2017.  The Board of Commissioners adopted pdf Ordinance No. 657 (450 KB) authorizing the execution of an Inter-municipal Agreement by and between the Township and five other municipalities to enable us to cooperate in meeting the requirements of the Lebanon Area Regional Pollutant Reduction Plan.


The Lebanon County Stormwater Consortium (Consortium) has prepared a joint Pollutant Reduction Plan (PRP) to be submitted to the PA Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) on or about September 16, 2017, as a component of each member municipality’s PAG-13 National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) General Permit application for Stormwater Discharges from Small Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4s).

The PRP outlines in general terms the Consortium’s 5-year plan between 2018 and 2023 to reduce sediment loadings from the Consortium Members’ MS4 stormwater discharges to the Snitz Creek-Quittapahilla Creek, Reeds Run-Swatara Creek, Lower Little Swatara Creek, and Headwaters Tulpehocken Creek watersheds by a minimum of 535,990 pounds of sediment per year. A copy of the PRP will be available on or before August 1, 2017 on the Redevelopment Authority’s website at, and a hardcopy can be reviewed in person at each of the municipal offices of the six member municipalities comprising the Consortium during regular business hours.
