Storm Water Pollution is a major source of water pollution in urban and suburban streams. Plumstead Township urges residents to help prevent this pollution as much as possible. In the fall, keep leaves away from storm drains. Leaves can have harmful pesticides on them that pollute the water and also will encourage the growth of algae, a problem in major waterways because it deprives the creatures living in the water of oxygen. In the winter months, limit the use of toxic deicing products on sidewalks and driveways since they can readily flow into storm drains and streams as snow melts. When these products dissolve they can seep into groundwater and flow into streams where they impair water quality, diminish soil fertility, damage plants and harm aquatic life. When possible avoid products containing chloride (Cl), including salt. Cl is a pollutant in fresh water streams, rivers and lakes where fresh fish and aquatic organisms are not adapted to salty or saline conditions.. Use environmentally-friendly alternatives such as clean clay cat litter, sand or fireplace/wood stove ash. After the snow melts, sweep up all residual sand, grit or litter to prevent accumulation in the streets and to prevent clogged storm drains/culverts. This helps limit sediment pollution in the streams.

FEMA is in the process of revising its flood plain maps of Pennsylvania, and the County has unveiled a website which will allow property owners to zoom in on a specific property to see if it lies within a designated zone for a 100-year flood or a 500-year flood. Users either can zoom in on the desired area or type in a specific address or parcel number. Other features are available on the toolbar. Click Here To View

A new flood map for Bucks County, is now in its review period, with an appeals deadline of November 23, 2013. These maps, created by the Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA), and collectively titled, Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) and a Flood Insurance Study (FIS), propose some changes to Bucks County's current flood zones that may impact which property owners will be required to buy flood insurance. The redrawn maps (drafted in 2010) use a new digital base map and updated hydrology to determine floodplain areas. Your flood insurance rates are calculated by where your property is situated on these flood maps. This link provides information on how to understand the maps.

Important News About Open Burning..Effective February 22, the Township has officially rescinded its Open Burning Policy and will no longer issue permits. This action is a result of formal notification from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PaDEP) that we are a mandated community under Act 101 and thus any burning is regulated by the state and we cannot supersede its authority. Based on the state law, the only property owners permitted to burn are those considered to be "working farms", defined as the production of agricultural commodities in their unmanufactured state on the premises of the farm operation. Campfires and ceremonial fires are also permitted. Yard waste is NOT permitted to be burned. Yard waste is defined as leaves, grass clippings, garden residue, tree trimmings, chipped shrubbery, and other vegetative materials. Because the Township is a mandated community we are responsible for the enforcement of this Act, and will do what is necessary to ensure that the Township and our residents remain in compliance with it.
