The City of Lancaster’s Department of Public Works Stormwater Bureau will accept public comments related to the City’s Chesapeake Bay Pollutant Reduction Plan (CBPRP) beginning on August 3, 2017, and extending through September 5, 2017. The City’s CBPRP was prepared to meet the requirements of the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer (MS4) permit with the PA Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). It includes an estimate of the baseload of pollutants that are discharged to streams in the planning area; the required pollutant reductions as identified by PA DEP; proposed stormwater improvement projects to achieve the minimum required pollutant reductions; probably funding sources; and operation and maintenance responsibilities.
