Erosion and Sediment Control
Stormwater that is “cloudy” or “dirty” and originated from an area of active earth disturbance.
The Borough investigates all erosion and sediment control concerns. Please provide your name, address, telephone number where you can be contacted, and the specific location of the origin of the sediment laden runoff.
New stormwater regulations from Pennsylvania’s Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) requires North York Borough to investigate potential illicit discharges into our streams as well as other events adversely affecting water quality.
If you notice any of the following, immediately notify the Borough:
- Dumping, spills, or other illicit (illegal) discharge into storm sewers or streams
- Sediment leaving a construction site during a rain event (See Erosion and Sediment Control Hotline)
- Observed pollution event or pollutants entering a stream
- Dry weather flows from outfall pipes into streams (a dry weather flow is water observed flowing out of a pipe when there hasn’t been any rainfall for a period of 72 hours or more)
- Fish Kills
- Water Main break
Stormwater is “clear” and originated from stable areas where active earth disturbance are not occurring.
Please provide your name, address, telephone number where you can be contacted, and the specific location of the origin of the stormwater runoff. Depending upon your description, the Borough will investigate your concern.
