If you own or are responsible for the maintenance of a stormwater system within Evesham Township, an annual inspection of your stormwater system needs to be completed and any areas of concern should be addressed. Systems need to function properly and be kept clean of all litter and pollutants.
In an effort to handle the concern, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection adopted Stormwater Management Regulations N.J.A.C 7:8 on February 2, 2004. Following this State regulation, Evesham Township adopted a local ordinance (Ord. No. 139), which also addresses Stormwater Management.
The Public Works Department of Evesham Township is responsible for confirming stormwater system maintenance is being completed as required. In addition, Public Works must have records on file supporting the completion of stormwater system maintenance.
Please use the form below and supply the required information related to the annual inspection and maintenance of the stormwater system you maintain. If you maintain more than one property/development, one form will need to be completed for each.
Please return the completed form(s) by mail to: Evesham Public Works, 984 Tuckerton Rd. Marlton, NJ 08053. Also, please keep a copy of the completed form for your records. Feel free to contact the Public Works Department at (856) 983-2798 if there are any questions or concerns.
Catchbasins should have all debris removed from not only the top but also the inside of the structure. Basins, whether it is retention (wet pond) or detention (dry pond), must function properly and also be kept clean of all litter, debris and pollutants. Vegetation in and around the basins/ponds should be maintained properly as well.
Polluted stormwater runoff is one of the greatest threats to our fresh water creeks, streams, rivers, ponds, lakes, and bays, as well as our oceans. As stormwater travels through a watershed, it picks up pollutants and washes them into the local waterways. These pollutants can come from activities including lawn fertilizing, not cleaning up after pets or general litter that eventually works its way into storm drains. Simple changes in our lifestyles can make a tremendous difference in the quality of our water resources.
To have a successful Stormwater Management Program, the stormwater system must be maintained. Most systems include things such as catch basins (inlets), typically located along streets, in parking areas, basins, ponds, lakes, creeks or streams. In some cases underground stormwater storage is also used. All would require some type of maintenance and need to be kept clean.
