Stormwater Management Ordinance

Delaware County provided a Model Stormwater Management Ordinance for municipalities to update their individual ordinances. The updated Model Ordinance is designed to comply with the regulatory requirements of Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protections’ (PA DEP) National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) program.

 Amendments to the Stormwater Management ordinance are currently under review and consideration by the Board of Supervisors. The Planning Commission reviewed the proposed amendments to the Stormwater Management ordinance and made a recommendation to the Board of Supervisors on March 13, 2024.
