More Information & Overview

Important Reminder:

If you are doing (or planning) a Stormwater Management Project, and will disturb 5,000 square feet or more of ground, you will need to obtain the approval of the York County Conservation District.

In addition, any projects impacting 500 square feet or more may require approval by the Borough Department of Planning & Engineering in the form of a Stormwater Management Plan. 

If you are unsure if you will meet either of these criteria, please refer to the Resources Section of the website for more information.  We encourage you to contact the department and ask any questions prior to submitting a Stormwater Management Permit Application (online). This will help to ensure a timely review and approval of your project.
