Flood and Water Pollution Solutions Public Meeting - June 21st
The York County Planning Commission invites county residents, municipal officials, and businesses to join us for a public information session to discuss the scale of flooding and water pollution in the County, along with potential solutions:

● When: Thursday, June 21, 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 pm (doors open at 6:30 p.m.)
● Where: York Learning Center, 300 East 7th Ave, York, PA 17404 (Old Central High School)

Approximately 1,100 miles of streams that don't meet mandated environmental standards have been identified in the County, and there are still many miles of streams to evaluate. In addition, the Commission has identified 215 locations on roads in the county that experience frequent flooding problems.

Among the solutions that will be discussed at this public meeting will be creation of a countywide stormwater authority. If approved by the York County Commissioners, this new local agency would address flooding and pollution problems by investing in stream restoration, erosion control, and reforestation projects along county waterways.
Come to the public meeting to learn more, ask questions, and share your thoughts with us. Your input will help shape this important effort. Please share this notice with any other interested parties.

Also please mark your calendars for the additional public meetings to be held on September 25th and November 8th.

Impaired Streams  in York County
The York County Stormwater Authority Feasibility Study was completed in January of 2016.  The County Board of Commissioners voted to accept the findings of the Study and charged the York County Planning Commission to move forward with an implementation plan.  Development of a Stormwater Authority Implementation Plan is now underway.  The purpose of the Plan is to find a more effective way to clean up the County's polluted streams and reduce flooding, as well as protect healthy streams.  Various maps were created to help communicate the stormwater efforts to stakeholders, municipalities, and the public.  One effective map is our impaired streams map.  It shows what streams were designated as impaired streams in 2010.  Since then, the DEP has continued stream assessments and more of our county streams are designated as impaired.  The attached map shows the comparison of the impaired streams from 2010 to 2018.  Other streams in the county are undergoing assessment.  DEP projects that all of York County streams will be impaired by 2020.
If you have questions about the map, please contact Tanya Wall .   If you have any questions about the Stormwater Authority project, please contact the YCPC Stormwater Representative  .
