Municipal Stormwater Forum

Municipal Stormwater Forum
March 9, 2020








This Municipal Stormwater Forum is focused on providing municipalities with the information they need to achieve MS4 compliance and manage their stormwater operations and maintenance responsibilities. The 2021 forum is designed especially for municipal public works employees.

Participants will rotate between 4 locations in Lancaster County to learn about stormwater BMPs that municipal staff might need to design, install, or maintain to meet MS4 requirements.

A bagged lunch will be provided.

Participants will need to drive their own vehicles to the various stops (addresses, directions, and maps will be provided).

Participants will be asked to follow current Covid-19 masking and social distancing requirements.

The 4 locations:

Rapho Township Building
971 North Colebrook Road, Manheim 17545
Rapho Township recently renovated their municipal office and public works facility to incorporate many green infrastructure and water quality improvements including the following:
• 12,000-gallon cistern – water is used in their single wash-bay
• Dive-in hoop house for salt storage
• Fuel tank and dumpsters under roof
• Rain gardens

Mount Joy Borough
Tour a rain garden and learn how Mount Joy Borough recently redesigned and rebuilt the inlet to better direct water flow into the practice. Attendees will also learn about the history of the practice, grant funding, maintenance tasks and other projects within the Borough.

Manor Township
Monticello Lane, Lancaster, PA 17603 (2 basins within walking distance of each other)
Manor Township public works staff completed two detention basin retrofit projects that discharge stormwater runoff from a residential development to the Little Conestoga Creek. The bioretention basin adjacent to Williamsburg Road treats 2.96 acres of impervious surfaces and will reduce sediment loads by 4,362 lbs per year. The Monticello Lane bioretention basin treats 13.35 acres of impervious surfaces and will reduce sediment loads by 20,497 lbs per year. Both of these projects were implemented to achieve required pollutant reductions as identified in their approved Pollutant Reduction Plan.

Murry Ridge Park, Mountville Pa 17554
West Hempfield public works staff has installed several stormwater BMPs at Murry Ridge Park to reduce stormwater pollutants and improve water quality. Public works staff installed an inlet and pipe system to divert upland stormwater runoff into a vegetated swale and bioretention basin prior to being discharged downstream The water quality elements include the following:
• Bioretention basin
• Vegetated Swale
• Dry basin retrofit to a Dry extended detention basin
• Riparian buffer plantings
• Proposed meadow plantings
