In order to facilitate the disbursement of precipitation from homes and businesses to nearby streams, Brentwood Borough operates a designated system of storm sewers. The municipality recognizes, however, this this infrastructure also conveys harmful sediments directly to local waterways. In accordance with its permit with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, Brentwood is required to mitigate the discharge of these damaging nutrients through the design and implementation of a Pollutant Reduction Plan. In accordance with the attached legal notice, the Borough will accept written comments on this proposed policy through September 2, 2017. Residents may also formally express their views for the record verbally at the August 21 meeting of Borough Council. A full copy of the document is available here.
