Storm Water Management and Conservation

Sadsbury Township Encourages Public Participation
for a Successful MS4 Storm water Program

Untreated or uncontrolled storm water runoff is the number one cause of impairment in our local waterways. Polluted runoff is often transported through municipal storm water systems where it eventually discharges into streams untreated.

MS4 Storm Water Management Program

Sadsbury Township and the Brandywine Valley Association need your involvement to help make Red Streams Blue and keep the blue streams blue. If you are interested in forming an Environmental Stream Team for SadsburyTownship please contact the Township Office.

Other areas where you can volunteer to improve and protect your neighborhood streams and waterways include:

  • Participation in a stream of creek clean-up within the Township
  • Plant trees along a stream or creek
  • Stencil storm drains with warnings about dumping
  • Organize a neighborhood pollution watch

These programs will allow you to spend time outside and close to your home learning about the environment through volunteering. They are excellent opportunities for students to earn community service hours, scout troops to provide community service and earn merit badges, and community based organizations to participate in your local area. If you or your group is interested in any of these programs please contact the Township.

For more information on ways you can help, or to report any non-stormwater discharge into local waterways please contact one of the agencies listed below.
