STORMWATER MANAGEMENT – In the State of Pennsylvania – ONLY stormwater can go in our storm sewers. Please do NOT wash your car outside in the street. If you have a side yard you can pull your car into – you can wash it if the water flows back into the ground, but it cannot go in the street. This link will provide more information on Stormwater Management. http://colwynborough.com/stormwater-management/
SNOW REMOVAL: Our Highway Department works diligently working to clear and salt our streets. If you see a street that is icy and needs salt, please let us know. Please be considerate as well when shoveling out your cars – please do not throw the snow back in the street as this is illegal. Thanks very much!
