MS4 Program (Water Drainage)

Discharges from municipal owned stormwater collection and conveyance systems in Kingston are regulated under the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) program. The goal of this program is to eliminate the impacts that discharges from these systems have on the health of our local waterways. When it rains, chemicals, oils and grease, debris, litter and sediment which may enter these systems can contaminate and adversely impact the quality of our waterways. The residents of Kingston play an important role in minimizing those impacts by understanding the importance of how these systems contribute to the health of our local waterways. Therefore, we have provided links to educational material developed by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection below so our residents can be better informed of how they can participate in improving the quality of discharge from the municipal stormwater systems.
