Reminder of What Not to Flush 

to Avoid Sewer Blockages

As you are using wipes to protect against Coronavirus, please remember that these should not be flushed, even if they are labeled as "flushable", because they can cause sewer blockages.

Recent Events in Stormwater Management

Fayette County recently hosted our first Stormwater Workshop, attended by Municipalities, Developers, Contractors, and Engineering Firms.  The day was filled with classroom education and hands-on demonstrations.  All participants had the opportunity to build a rain barrel, which is an inexpensive solution for controlling roof runoff.  Participants signed and toured Ohiopyle Borough’s rain garden and bioswales, to learn about stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs).  

Thank to you everyone who took time from their busy day to participate and a special thanks to the Fayette County Conservation District, McMillen Engineering, and all of our other partners and vendors!
