Public Comment – Pollutant Reduction
Columbia Borough has created a Pollutant Reduction Plan (PRP) to meet the requirements of its Municipal Separate Storm Sewer (MS4) permit with the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). The PRP includes estimates of the existing pollutants that are discharged to streams within the Borough and the associated reductions that are required by DEP. The plan also identifies proposed stormwater improvements needed to meet these pollutant reduction requirements, possible funding sources and ongoing operation and maintenance responsibilities for the proposed stormwater improvements. A public review period of the draft PRP will begin on July 24, 2017 and will continue for 30 days until August 22, 2017. The draft will be available for public inspection at the Borough office located at 308 Locust Street, Columbia, Mondays through Fridays between the hours of 8:00 am and 4:30 pm. During this period, comments will be accepted verbally at the Borough Council meeting on August 14, 2017, be submitted in writing to the Borough office, or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
