Storm Management MS4 Information


Stormwater Management Information


Discharges from municipal owned stormwater collection and conveyance systems in West Pittston are regulated under the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) program. The goal of this program is to eliminate the impacts that discharges from these systems have on the health of our local waterways. When it rains, chemicals, oils and grease, debris, litter and sediment which may enter these systems can contaminate and adversely impact the quality of our waterways. The residents of West Pittston play an important role in minimizing those impacts by understanding the importance of how these systems contribute to the health of our local waterways. Therefore, we have provided links to educational material developed by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection below so our residents can be better informed of how they can participate in improving the quality of discharge from the municipal stormwater systems.


What is Storm Water?


Stormwater is water from rain and melted snow that flows across the ground into the storm sewers found at low points and along the sides of streets. Stormwater flows through a system of pipes and roadside ditches that make up the storm sewer system. The water eventually finds its way to lakes, rivers, streams, wetlands, and the ocean.

Stormwater becomes a problem when it picks up debris, chemicals, dirt and other pollutants which end up in our receiving waters that we use for drinking water and recreation.
