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 Once, an undeveloped Pennsylvania, has now been replaced by croplands, growing suburban developments and densely populated cities.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 January 2, 2024, the West Hempfield Township Municipal Authority approved keeping the Stormwater Management Fee the same for 2024.  

As a result, the 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.
