Trout Creek Project Excerpts

In May of 2006, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection awarded a grant to Tredyffrin Township for the work in Trout Creek. As a part of this grant, the Township compiled an educational brochure with information about how residents can help improve the watershed through projects in their own yards. Tredyffrin Township has granted permission to post the valuable information for Malvern Borough. The following portions of the document provide information on how homeowners can install stormwater practices for reducing and infiltrating stormwater runoff, a process through which the water is filtered by plants and permeates through the soil before it reaches our streams. These actions can significantly slow and reduce the volume of runoff generated by impervious surfaces.
