SECTION X: STORM SEWER REVENUE FUND
The funds received from the collection of the Stormwater Management Fee authorized by this Ordinance shall be deposited into a Storm Sewer Revenue Fund, a fund and account hereby created and dedicated to the operation, administration, maintenance, repair and improvement of the Storm Sewer System and compliance with associated regulatory requirements.
New Sewickley Township is completing the first project as part of its MS4 Permit Pollutant Reduction Plan requirements. The improvements being completed at Green Valley Park will improve the water quality of Brush Creek as well as help control the runoff in the park. The Township is currently installing 16 new storm sewer inlets and approximately 2,100 linear feet of new storm sewer conveyance pipe. This additional infrastructure will capture the stormwater runoff and better convey it to Brush Creek. Additionally, the improvements include construction of a new rain garden, including a Focal Point system. This new rain garden will control the discharge of the stormwater throughout the park by detaining it for a longer period of time. Additionally, the Focal Point is a Biofiltration System that filters the stormwater through its designed media, removing pollutants that are within the stormwater, improving the overall water quality that reaches Brush Creek.
The New Sewickley Township Board of Supervisors authorized the award of Contract No. 21-SW1 – 2021 Stormwater Improvements (Green Valley Park) to A. Liberoni, Inc. in the total amount of $330,114.25 at the December 6, 2021 Board of Supervisors Meeting.
The Township received a grant for up to $230,000 for this project through the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Thank you to State Senator Elder Vogel Jr. and State Representative Jim Marshall for their support for this project and our Township.
The Township Road Department completed slope stabilization and stormwater sewer improvements on Powell Road between Brush Creek Rd. and Mellon Rd. The improvements included installing multiple catch basins, creating end walls, and adding additional underground pipe crossings to reduce erosive surface flow and limit future road damage due to slides. This project was funded in part by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Dirt, Gravel, and Low Volume Road Maintenance Program and administered by the Beaver County Conservation District. Thank you to State Senator Elder Vogel Jr. and State Representative Jim Marshall for their continued support of this program.
