8:45-9:45 am - Stormwater for Land Development: Understanding the Regulations, Municipal Obligations, and Upcoming Changes 

Join Len Bradley, PE (RGS Associates) and Charles Haws, esq (Barley Snyder) for a discussion on stormwater management aspects of land development.  This presentation will cover the basic stormwater regulations, NPDES permitting requirements, operation, and maintenance obligations for land development projects for developers and real estate professionals. Municipal stormwater obligations and how they can partner with developers to promote public-private-partnership will also be explored. Lastly, recent court decisions will be presented along with an update on the Pennsylvania State Water Plan.

9:45-10:00 am - Break

10:00 - 11:00 am - How Are Municipalities Complying with Pollutant Reduction Plan Requirements? 

Municipalities are an important part of the collaborative effort for clean water happening across Lancaster County.  They are using a variety of unique strategies to implement stormwater projects identified in approved Pollutant Reduction Plans. This presentation will showcase success stories of municipal projects that are completed, under construction, and being planned to comply with and/or exceed the 2018-2023 MS4 permit requirements.

11:00 - 12:00 pm - Partnerships

Being a good neighbor can result in beneficial partnerships you never expected. 

But that can be a sticky process because collaboration doesn't mean the same thing as cooperation, and they don't mean the same thing as coordination. 

Moving through each stage will help us learn to do more than coexist with our neighbors.  Because our shared boundaries like creeks are determined by mother nature more often than political reasons.  Join us to learn ways municipalities are using partnerships to achieve a common goal of clean and clear water, an idea that brings us together across boundaries.
