In January 2020, Lycoming County Water and Sewer Authority (LCWSA), South Williamsport, and Duboistown entered into an Intergovernmental Cooperation Agreement to work together to develop a Regional Stormwater Management Program (SMP) and ultimately share in the costs associated with the program and achieve compliance with the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System or MS4 permit, regulated by Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP).
By working together, a beneficial, cost savings approach to the pollution reduction loads has been achieved. The updated and combined CBPRP is now available for public comment. Public Meetings will be held in August to reveiw the CBPRP at both Borough Council Meetings. Following, the CBPRP will be submitted to PADEP later this summer for final approval.
Several key elements have been ongoing over the past nine months and include the combined Chesapeake Bay Pollution Reduction Plan (CBPRP) for a regional, cost sharing approach to achieve compliance with state and federal mandates, and the implementation of a Stormwater Utility Fee for both Boroughs.
