Stormwater and Flooding

Delaware County supports local stormwater and floodplain management through sound planning and technical assistance.

Stormwater and floodplain management are important for protecting the health and safety of the County’s municipalities from flooding and for the protection of water quality. Planning Department staff work closely with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), and municipalities to undertake planning projects, provide model ordinances, and support local efforts to maintain compliance with federal and state regulatory programs.
