East Petersburg Borough continued to apply their Best Management Practices (BMP’s) to cleaning up the storm basins by performing routine trash clean-up.

East Petersburg Borough routinely inspects and cleans the stormwater conveyance system throughout the Borough.  Parts of that conveyance system include not only gutters, inlets and pipes , but also the catch basins and channelized swales located within the Borough.  As part of those routine inspections , the condition of the basin is tracked along with maintenance that needs to be done and all trash and debris removed.
