Capital Region Water is seeking public comment on proposed stormwater rules and regulations that will guide how Capital Region Water manages stormwater in its service area to protect local waterways and meet permit requirements.
The proposed rules and regulations are part of the ongoing transition of the City of Harrisburg’s stormwater collection system to Capital Region Water.
Capital Region Water is the successor to the Harrisburg Authority and is in charge of providing over 60,000 residents in the City of Harrisburg, parts of Penbrook Borough, Susquehanna, Swatara and Lower Paxton townships.
CRW also manages the wastewater treatment and collection system for the City of Harrisburg and treats wastewater from Steelton, Paxtang and Penbrook boroughs and portion of Susquehanna, Swatara and Lower Paxton townships.
CRW is currently obtaining an MS4 stormwater management permit from the Department of Environmental Protection that will lead to reductions in stormwater pollution throughout its service area. These regulations are part of that effort.
The public comment period ends January 16.
