Stormwater Management 

Stormwater Management in Cranberry

Cranberry’s current stormwater management system is extensive.  Parts of it are privately owned, other parts are municipal property.  All property owners are required to keep their stormwater facilities in working order at their own expense.  Cranberry currently spends over a million dollars a year to maintain its portions of that system. Until recently, Cranberry financed its stormwater system and flood control maintenance from general tax revenues.  However, with the state’s updated regulations, that expense has grown.
(Pennsylvania’s Department of Environmental Protection has issued a series of updated regulations designed to reduce water pollution and protect property against flooding from stormwater.  Those regulations must be implemented by 2023.)

Stormwater Management

The Cranberry Township General Authority, formed in 2014 to undertake capital projects on behalf of the Township, will propose a Stormwater Utility Fee on all developed real estate in Cranberry starting January 1, 2020.  Proceeds from the fee, which will be collected by the Township through its monthly water/sewer/trash bills, will be used to maintain and enhance Cranberry’s stormwater handling resources, as required by state and federal law.
