Stormwater Advisory Committee

The Ferguson Township Stormwater Advisory Committee (SAC) has been established to:

1. Provide advice and input into identifying the problems, needs, and issues within the current stormwater program.
2. Assist in establishing priorities for stormwater services in the Township.
3. Provide advice on level and extent of stormwater service, investment in the capital improvements program, approach to water quality protection services, and other key policies that will guide the stormwater management program.
4. Review policy on stormwater funding mechanisms including user fees, and explore rate methodologies, rate structures, and possible credits.
5. Make recommendations to the Board of Supervisors regarding the dedicated funding needed to address stormwater needs in Ferguson.

The SAC has scheduled its 6th and 7th meetings for Wednesday, March 21 and Wednesday, April 18, respectively. Both meetings are open to the public and officially begin at noon.  

The focus of these meetings are to set priorities for the Ferguson Township Stormwater Program.

Follow this page or our Latest News or Events Calendar for the agendas and resource materials.

In addition, Ferguson Township staff and consultant Elizabeth Treadway of Amec Foster Wheeler -- in partnership with Gannett Fleming --will host two public meetings on the stormwater user fee feasibility study, also on March 21 and April 18. Open to anyone in the community, these evening open houses will be an opportunity to learn what this project is and the options being considered to pay for stormwater management.

The public meetings are scheduled for 5:30 - 7:30 pm Wednesday, March 21, and 4:30 - 6:30 pm Wednesday, April 18. They are tentatively scheduled in the Main Meeting Room of the Ferguson Township Municipal Building, 3147 Research Drive. Details will be confirmed closer to those dates
