Stormwater

Stormwater

Stormwater runoff is generated when rain and melting snow flows over land or impervious surfaces and does not saturate into the ground. As the runoff flows over the land or these impervious surfaces such as paved streets, parking lots, and building rooftops, it accumulates debris, chemicals, sediment or other pollutants that could harmfully effect water quality if the runoff is left untreated.

What you can do:

  • Turn your yard waste into useful compost and find other alternatives to fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides.

  • Sweep up anything left on sidewalks, driveways, and roads.

  • Never pour anything into storm drains.

  • Direct downspouts to grassy not paved areas.

  • Check for leaks from your car's engine and recycle motor oil.

  • Wash your car at a carwash instead of your driveway.

  • Clean up all pet waste.

Pollutant Reduction Plan

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection requires municipalities to develop a Pollutant Reduction Plan (PRP) to reduce the discharge of pollutants into impaired watersheds. View Moon Township’s Pollutant Reduction Plan
