Stormwater is the precipitation, either rain, snow, or ice, that becomes surface water drainage instead of soaking into the ground. Once, an undeveloped Pennsylvania, has now been replaced by croplands, growing suburban developments and densely populated cities. Developed land generates tremendous amount of stormwater that causes property damage and water pollution if not managed properly. 

On June 1, 2021, the West Hempfield Township Municipal Authority approved discounts to the 2021 Stormwater Management Fee.  These discounts came as a result of additional unanticipated funds coming to the Township to help cover the cost of our stormwater projects for 2021.

As a result, the discounted fees are:

  1. Residential:   All Single-Family Residential Properties will pay $54.00.
  2. Agriculture:  All Agricultural properties with one ERU will pay $54.00. All Agricultural properties over one ERU will pay $36 per ERU.  All agricultural properties over one ERU for which an approved conservation plan is provided to the Township, along with certification that the plan has been implemented, will be reduced to one ERU. 
  3. Non-Residential/Non-Agricultural:   All Non-Residential/Non-Agricultural properties with one ERU will pay $54.00. All Non-Residential/Non-Agricultural properties over one ERU will pay $36 per ERU.
