Original 2017 PRPs

The Town of McCandless has prepared a pollutant reduction plan (PRP) for each Town watershed to comply with a new PADEP requirement for the upcoming 2018 to 2023 Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) permit. The PRPs outline potential actions and projects that reduce pollution caused by sediment and/or nutrients in watershed streams.

The plans were available for public comment from July 24 to August 25, 2017.

Further, you will find the Pollution Reduction Plans in PDF form. Additionally, a copy of the general overview that was presented at the PRP open house on July 24, 2017 is available as well.
