& EROSION CONTROL/STORMWATER MANAGEMENT PLANS
Urbanization is having an increasing impact on the
soil and water resources of York County. Unprecedented growth is occurring
throughout the county. Development has been given a boost by recent lowered
mortgage rates, a vigorous building industry and farmland going out of
production. Recent regulations have been passed that require each municipality
to review and grant approval to all land subdivided within a 5-year period into
3 or more lots. As a result, there has been a great demand from municipalities
and the public for technical assistance regarding erosion/sediment control and
stormwater management at development sites. Towns can retain control of land
use changes with the technical assistance available through the YCSWCD.
District staff provides assistance with the review and implementation of
sediment and erosion control, and stormwater management plans.
