The Pollutant Reduction Plan (PRP) is a new requirement for 2018 National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES). A PRP Plan shows how the municipality will reduce the pollutant loads going into a waterway. There are many requirements for PRPs, outlined by the DEP, for municipalities that discharge nutrients and sediment to waters. This plan deals with storm water pollutant reduction for communities that are part of the MS4 (Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System). Comprehensive mapping has been completed to identify the complete network of storm water collection and conveyance facilities.
Green Tree Borough has identified pollutants of concern entering two waterways -- Chartiers Creek and Saw Mill Run Crrek -- and is presenting methods to reduce them in this PRP. The Pollutant Reduction Plan was advertised in the borough's general circulation newspaper of record to solicit public comment. The advertisement was placed on July 31, 2017 and identified and 30-day comment period, beginning on July 31, 2017 the ending August 31, 2017. During the 30-day comment period, the draft PRP document is available for public review and comment here on the borough's website, and at the Green Tree Municipal Center Office, 10 West Manilla Avenue.
The PRP was discussed as an agenda item at the regularly scheduled August 7, 2017 Borough Council meeting. Notice of discussion of PRP at the August 7, 2017 Borough Council Meeting was included in the above noted public notice.
If you prefer, a paper copy of the Pollutant Reduction Plan is available at the Green Tree Municipal Center Office along with paper comment forms that can be completed and returned to the office.
