MS4
 

Coming Soon to our Township.......MS4
 
I bet you are thinking, what is MS4 and what does it mean to me ? ? ? ? ?
 
  • MS4 is an acronym for Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System.
  • Sadsbury Township is in the process of applying for the 2018-2023 General MS4 Permit, Federal legislation under The Clean Water Act.
  • The township is preparing a Pollutant Reduction Plan (PRP) which will be available for Public Comment.
  • The PRP describes potential projects where Best Management Practices (BMP) will reduce sediment discharge by 10% during the five year permit cycle.
  • Potential Projects in Sadsbury Township include basin retrofits, bioswale and stream restoration.  
  • Every resident can help in reducing pollutants which travel into our streams.
    • Keep grass clippings and leaves out of the street and storm drains. 
    • Mow your grass height to 3" or higher to slow down the rate of runoff allowing more water to be absorbed into the ground.
    • Research fertilizers and pesticides for non-chemical alternatives.
    • One of the MS4 requirments is Public Education and Outreach.  You will be hearing more from us on what you can do to help.
