Tips for Reducing Stormwater Pollution
Sellersville Borough and the Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy would like to remind you of the importance of preventing stormwater pollution while you make the most of the fall season. Stormwater is formed when rainwater makes its way into storm drains or runs off our properties directly into streams. On its journey to the stream, stormwater can pick up harmful substances that pollute our watershed. Click the following link for tips from the Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy for fall related tips on helping to reduce stormwater pollution:Seasonal Tips for Protecting Our Waterways-Fall
Additional information on reducing stormwater contamination can be found on our website under: Stormwater Management
