Residents play a big part in protecting water quality.
The most recent National Water Quality Inventory reports that runoff from urbanized areas is the leading source of water quality impairments to surveyed estuaries and the third-largest source of impairments to surveyed lakes.
Water flowing into storm drains in the Borough makes it way to the Chesapeake Bay watershed. What goes down the drain in Penbrook can end up impacting the overall health of people, plants, wildlife, and much more! Join us in keeping our streets clean by picking up trash and grass clippings along the streets in front of yours homes.
