Water flows into a stormwater drain in Carlisle.

Carlisle Borough is accepting comment on its stormwater pollution reduction plan through Dec. 6.

The borough developed the plan to meet the nitrogen, phosphorus, and sediment reduction requirements of its National Pollutant Discharge Elimination Permit for its Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems that are mandated by Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection.

As a condition of the permit, the borough is required to review public comments on the draft plan before its submission to DEP.

The 30-day public comment period began with the presentation of the draft plan at the Nov. 6 borough council workshop meeting and extends until Dec. 6.

The draft plan identifies several best management practices to be implemented over the next five years to meet the pollution reduction requirements placed on the borough for stormwater discharges to waters that are tributaries to the Chesapeake Bay.

The public is invited to review the draft plan, which is available on the borough’s website at: https://www.carlislepa.org/wpcontent/uploads/2019/11/CBPRP-2019-Web.pdf.

A hard copy of the plan is also available for review at Borough Hall, 53 W. South St.
