Attached Document or File Stormwater Complaint Phone Numbers

Citizens can help report violations or problems they notice in their local streams before they cause more damage and pollution.  Residents sometimes may be the first to recognize “illicit” discharges being directed into storm sewers or flowing  out of storm sewer outfall pipes into streams.  “Dry weather flows”- flows from outfall pipes after a 72 hour or greater period without rain that appears to be polluted or contaminated - should be reported to Marcus Hook Borough during regular business hours, or to DEP during off hours, for further investigation. Click on the heading for a list of different organizations' phone numbers to call to report a water quality issue depending on the situation you encounter.  You may also complete the Stormwater Complaint Form by clicking on this heading.

Some stormwater risks can be controlled by making changes to buildings, paved surfaces, the landscape, and soil surfaces.  Click on the heading for more information regarding landscape alterations you might want to consider.


Attached Document or File Information for Borough Businesses

During the first five years of the stormwater program, Marcus Hook Borough contacted all of its restaurant businesses to let them know about the NPDES program and ways in which they could support it. 

Also the Borough auto body shops and other facilities that conduct their own vehicle maintenance were informed about the program and how they could prevent stormwater runoff pollution.
