The Township actively encourages water conservation and efficiency measures in the community and among businesses. Though only a small contributor to local greenhouse gas emissions, preserving the quality of the local water supply is critical to the quality of life in the community. The Township is governed by three separate authorities and entities to provide water and sanitary sewer services. All three of these water and sewer agencies span multiple municipalities in the region. The Township regularly advocates with each agency to invest in necessary infrastructure improvements and to improve contingency plans during times of emergency. The Township also advises businesses and residents to take actionable steps to reduce their water consumption.
The Township maintains stormwater infrastructure throughout the community, both through underground storm sewer networks, and above-ground basins. In recent years, the Township has increased its capital investment in stormwater management to adapt to the evolving local climate. When considering new land developments, the Township works extensively with developers to create low-impact development, oftentimes through onsite stormwater infiltration systems.
