Ephrata Township Storm Water Management Program
Notice to Ephrata Township Residents
In an effort to reduce storm water pollution and improve water quality, Ephrata Township has developed and implemented a Storm Water Management Program. This program is required by the National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit, issued through the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PA DEP) and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA). The NPDES permit regulates storm water discharges from the Township's municipal separate storm water system (MS4); a series of inlets, pipes, swales, outfalls and other drainage facilities that collect, convey and discharge storm water directly into our streams.
If you notice any illicit discharge which would allow any type of pollution to enter the storm water system or any body of water, please contact the Township immediately at 717-733-1044.Click Here to Read the Full News Article
