Stormwater Updates

Stormwater Fee Feasibility Study Meeting:

In conjunction with the regular Board of Commissioners meeting on Monday, October 8, 2018, at 7:00 PM, Lower Allen Township will hear a presentation from Arcadis regarding the progress of the stormwater fee feasibility study and recommendation of a stormwater fee rate structure. Open to anyone in the community, this meeting is an opportunity to learn more about the study and recommendations being proposed to pay for stormwater management. Public is invited and encouraged to attend and participate.




Lower Allen Township began discussions in January regarding the Stormwater Program and creation of a Stormwater Fee and has since been working closely with consultants from Arcadis, Inc.  The Board of Commissioners heard an initial presentation regarding a Stormwater Fee from Arcadis at their June 11, 2018 meeting. The overall goal of Lower Allen Township is to develop a sustainably-funded stormwater program that begins to address the long-term stormwater needs of the Township and to comply with mandates from PADEP and USEPA. 

The PowerPoint presentation that Arcadis presented on June 11, 2018, and a Frequently Asked Questions document are attached below for your information. We expect to provide updates on the overall project progress in future issues of the Township Newsletter and on the Township Website, including additional details of the stormwater program and fee. If you have any questions regarding the program please contact Rebecca Davis, MS4 Coordinator, @ rdavis@latwp.org or 717-975-7575 ext. 1010.
