Commissioners Approve Stormwater Management Plan

On July 1, the Potter County Commissioners approved the Stormwater Management Plan proposed by the Potter County Planning Commission. The document has been developed over the past two-plus years by the Planning Commission, an engineer, and a team of township and borough leaders. DEP has 90 days to accept the county’s plan, after which time it will be sent to all Potter County townships  and boroughs for adoption within 60 days.

Pa. Act 167 requires each county to develop standards to prevent flooding, soil erosion, road damage and related problems from improperly directed stormwater. Townships and boroughs must administer the ordinance locally. Copies of the Potter County Stormwater Management Plan are available by contacting the Planning Office at 274-8254. The plan can also be accessed on the internet by clicking here.
