Stormwater Membership Benefits
Stormwater Membership is an essential tool for all Pennsylvania stormwater systems to prepare for new stormwater regulations. The PRWA Staff is ready and equipped to help your community or utility face the most complex challenges and regulations in the industry with resources, discounts, technical assistance, and legislative support.
Stormwater Membership offers guidance in:
- Public education: to inform individuals and households about ways to reduce stormwater pollution
- Public involvement: to involve the public in the development, implementation, and review of a stormwater management program
- Illicit discharge detection & elimination: for identifying and eliminating illicit discharges and spills to storm drain systems
- Pollution prevention and good housekeeping: BMPs for MS4s to address stormwater runoff from their own facilities and activities
Managing and understanding your municipality's stormwater system is a constant challenge. Utilizing a Geographic Information System (GIS) can help you to gain control of these complex issues and allow you to:
- Build and maintain a database of your stormwater features: outfalls, conveyances, inlets, and basins
- Create a database of on-the-ground best management practices to handle stormwater in a more efficient manner: swales, rain gardens, infiltration basins, and green infrastructure
- Analyze flood prone and problem areas to assist in solving community issues related to stormwater runoff with tools like flow analysis and 3-dimensional modeling
- Take a multi-scale approach to finding stormwater management solutions, allowing you to collaborate on both local and multi-municipal issues
- Meet stormwater regulations related to MS4 – specifically the Illicit Discharge, Detection, and Elimination (IDDE) component during dry weather periods.
