Storm Water Fact of the Week...

Catch Basin

Stormwater Fact of the Week:

The Township owns and maintains over 1500 catch basins. A catch basin prevents water from collecting on roads, parking lots, playing fields and other surfaces. They are vital because they prevent flooding from the rain and snow melt while taking pollutants out of our waterways at the same time. The Township is required by a DEP permit to visit and inspect every catch basin annually. Should the catch basin need any form of maintenance, it will be put on a schedule for the Public Works Road Department to maintain.
