Pursuant to PA Department of Environmental Protection requirements, the Township adopted a revised stormwater ordinance in November 2013 that became effective on January 1, 2014. This ordinance applies not only to new construction, but to building additions, driveways, patios, decks and sheds as well.
Generally speaking, you must submit a stormwater management application for any of these types of projects, although the complexity of the stormwater management plan will vary greatly depending on the size and scope of your proposed project. As this is a complicated subject, you are encouraged to contact the Mark Gordon at 610-692-7171 to discuss the matter in greater detail.
