Keep Upper St. Clair Waterways Pollution-Free

Public Works - Friday, April 13, 2018

Stormwater pollution is a detrimental problem to our environment by degrading water quality in the streams, rivers and lakes. The Environmental Protection Agency and Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection recognize the growing problem and have implemented numerous permits to prevent stormwater pollution. One such permit is the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) that was issued to hundreds of Pennsylvania municipalities back in 2003, including the Township of Upper St. Clair.

Prohibited non-stormwater discharges that enter into the storm drain and result in pollution to our waterways are commonly referred to as illicit discharges. Examples of illicit discharges include:
-Fuel and Gasoline
-Automotive oil 
-Grease
-Construction runoff (i.e. sediment) 
-Soaps and Detergents
-Paint
-Grass clippings
-Sanitary wastewater
-Animal waste
-Household chemicals

According to the MS4 permit there are exemptions to what can drain into the storm sewer system. Examples of non-stormwater discharges which are not considered illicit include:
-Residential car washing without soaps
-Discharges from potable water sources
-Air conditioning condensation 
-Irrigation water
-Springs
-Water from crawl space pumps
-Footing and foundation drains
-Lawn watering
-Water line flushing 
-Flows from firefighting

Please report any illicit discharges to the Township of Upper St. Clair Public Works Department at 412-831-9000 x271.

The Township of Upper St. Clair Board of Commissioners declares April 8-14, 2018 Library Week in Upper St. Clair.

Commissioner Elise Logan presented an official proclamation to Library Board Member Robert Ontolchik at the Board of Commissioners meeting on Monday night. Logan and Ontolchik encourage residents to visit the library during National Library Week and see what's new at the Upper St. Clair Library.

"What a great operation we have here at the library," said Ontolchik.

According to Ontolchik, 325,000 items were checked out from the library in 2017. In addition, Ontolchik said the library ran 700 programs last year that 14,000 people attended.

Libraries have long served as trusted and treasured institutions, and library workers and librarians fuel efforts to better their communities. The Upper St. Clair Library provides STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) programming, Makerspaces (spaces where people can gather to create, invent, and learn), and access and training for new technologies.

Librarians look beyond their traditional roles and provide transformative opportunities for education, employment, entrepreneurship, empowerment and engagement, as well as new services that connect closely with patrons' needs. Upper St. Clair librarians are committed to serving and providing educational resources and equitable access to information to all library users regardless of race, ethnicity, creed, ability, or socio-economic status.
