Borough Stormwater Information
Residents of Mayfield can obtain stormwater pamphlets containing
information on how
stormwater impacts the Chesapeake Bay. These pamphlets are available at
the borough office. In addition, any group or business interested in
displaying a stormwater poster can request a copy of one of four
posters which depict how everyday activities can affect local waters
which ultimately flow into the Chesapeake Bay. We do not often consider
how things such as car washing, leaking oil, fertilizer, and animal
wastes flow into catch basins and waterways that feed the Lackawanna
River, Susquehanna River, and then into the Bay. Read the information
and become stormwater aware! For more information go to:
If you have
questions about any of these borough policies, please contact Phyllis
at 876-4391, thanks!
