Local governments across Pennsylvania have some new options to address the widespread problem of storm water runoff.
“It’s another tool,” said Jennifer Quinn of the environmental group PennFuture.
She said SB 1255, signed by Gov. Corbett Thursday, builds upon Act 68 of last year that allows municipalities to establish storm water authorities to address the widespread problem of runoff.
Under this new law, the storm water authorities can offer credits to homeowners and businesses to reduce their fees by implementing storm water management best practices.
