As part of the Irwin Borough Municipal Sperate Storm Sewer System, or MS4, permit with the Pennsylvania DEP, the Irwin Borough Council would like to remind all people who live in and work within the Borough that our storm sewer inlets, curbs and gutters, drainage ditches and storm pipes discharge directly and untreated into Brush Creek, Tinkers Run and other natural waterway tributaries within the Borough. In order to keep our streams and lakes clean and pollution-free, we remind residents and businesses to please:
Do NOT discard leaves, grass clippings, used paints, solvents, or other wastes into the storm drains, roadside ditches or stream channels.
You can also share the video below that is shared with school aged children to show then where storm drains lead and what happens when they are not maintained.
Where to the stormdrains go?
