In compliance with DEP and EPA regulations, the Borough of Hollidaysburg has developed its Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4), NPDES Phase II Stormwater Management Program. The program involves, among other things, the development of public education and involvement activities, the review and update of the Borough’s stormwater management rules and regulations, the detection and elimination of illicit discharges, and the review and improvement of stormwater facility operations and maintenance practices.
This page will be used to provide news, information and stormwater management data to residents, businesses, contractors and developers as the program is developed. The Borough will also be seeking assistance of the public to participate in stormwater management activities such as storm inlet labeling, stormwater outfall monitoring, sample collection, and information workshops. Please watch this page for future developments.
