The Towamencin Township Supervisors have approved a cost-sharing agreement with other members of a stormwater coalition. They have banded together to provide input on new stormwater management regulations that become effective in March. Chairman Dan Littley says they need better direction from Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection regulators on what the new rules mean.
“We are trying to tell DEP that they need to be a little more definitive on where things apply, who they apply to, rather than just coming out with this blanket ordinance and saying, ‘pass it, accept it and we’ll press on.’”
Littley says the new rules could be very costly to local taxpayers and homeowners. About three dozen Montgomery and Bucks County municipalities in the coalition will share the cost of legal fees and other professional services based on their population.
