Stormwater washes away municipal boundaries

JACKSON TWP — After 2½ years of unprecedented cooperation between 10 municipalities, the Southwest Butler Stormwater Management Group has raised over $5 million to combat regional flooding.

The money, $5,777,867, was awarded through Butler County’s Municipal Infrastructure Program grants.

“It’s a great day,” said the group’s facilitator, Jerry Andree. “Historically, you’ve never seen that kind of investment in stormwater management in your community, so there’s a lot to celebrate.”

The group met Monday afternoon at the Jackson Township municipal building. Participating municipalities include Adams Township, Cranberry Township, Evans City, Forward Township, Harmony, Jackson Township, Lancaster Township, Penn Township, Seven Fields and Zelienople.
