to the Clean Water Act (CWA).
In 2016, the Department of Environmental Protection (DEPI labeled approximately 19,000 mites Of rivers
and streams in Pennsylvania impaired for water supply, aquatic life, recreation or fish consumption.

Susquehanna River by as much as 10% in the next five years (2018-2023). Stormwater carries an
immense amount Of pollution, including sediment. Car oil, lawn fertilizers and pesticides. Those
