Tredyffrin Taskforce on Stormwater

Tredyffrin Township is characterized by dense development on steep slopes, underlain by an aging infrastructure that proved no match for the intense storms and increasing regulatory requirements of the late 2010s. A group of citizens in the Valley Creek Restoration Partnership built on emerging widespread resident concerns about flooding to propose a Township response. This led the Township Supervisors to charter a Citizens Advisory Stormwater Task Force to help with the research and analysis of the problems and their solutions. This presentation will cover the genesis of the Task Force, its organization, the work it performed and its conclusions. We will describe where Tredyffrin is now (spoiler alert: committed to, and working on the details of, a Stormwater Management Fee), and as best we can identify factors that contributed to, and detracted from, the Task Force performance.
