In accordance with the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Small Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) permit requirements, Chalfont Borough has prepared a revised Pollutant Reduction Plan (PRP) and a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) Plan. The plans detail the scheduled implementation of a series of Best Management Practices (BMP’s) necessary for the reduction of pollutants (sediment and/or nutrients) in the waterways of the municipality. Chalfont Borough is required to reduce pollutants to the Neshaminy Creek watershed.
The PRP and TMDL Plan are available for review and public comment at the Chalfont Borough Hall at 40 North Main Street, Chalfont, PA 18914 on or about January 14 2019, for a 30 day comment period. Public comment should be submitted, in writing, to Chalfont Borough no later than February 14, 2019.
Chalfont Borough Residents: Advanced Disposal will have curbside pickup for Christmas Trees on Saturday, January 12, 2019.
Hey All. Guess what? We have an overnight parking ban in most neighborhoods in the Borough. The ban is from 1 am to 6 am. If you are parked on Borough roads during that time you may get ticketed and the tickets are $25. If you have a TEMPORARY issue and need to park on the street (construction on your home, out of town guests, etc) please call Central Bucks Regional PD and they will note the exception 215-345-4143. If it’s after hours call the Bucks County Dispatch at 215-348-4680.
This exemption is for temporary issues only, it can’t be used for regular occurrences (i.e. parking a work truck there once per week, kids home from college, etc).
Thank you and Happy Holidays!
