STORM WATER MANAGEMENT ORDINANCE
Act 167 was originally adopted by the Commonwealth in 1978 but was considered by most counties as an unfunded mandate and largely ignored. The Rendell Administration provided implementation funds to various counties in 2008 and Butler County used those funds to develop and adapt a storm water plan. All municipalities within Butler County were required to adopt the proposed plan as well.
Instances of Earth disturbance that may affect storm water runoff are subject to the regulation of this Ordinance. These “regulated activities” include (but are not limited to) land development, subdivision, construction of new buildings and diversion of piping or any natural or man-made stream channel.
You can read the entire Ordinance here:
The plans submitted to the Township will require Engineer review. Please note that the Ordinance provides for costs incurred by the municipality to be passed onto the land developer.
DRIVEWAY MAINTENANCE ORDINANCE
The Oakland Township Board of Supervisors passed a Driveway Maintenance Ordinance earlier this year. Residents who have driveways that wash out onto the Township roads cause hazards for all passersby. This is of serious concern.
