Welcome to 
Avalon Borough's 
Storm Water Management 
Information Page

This sight will explain the importance of managing storm water before it reaches our creeks and rivers.  See how we can all help keep our watersheds free of pollution by keeping our neighborhood streets free of litter, managing pesticides, maintaining our vehicles properly, and cleaning up after our pets.  We can also
manage storm water by increasing green space - collecting rain water in rain barrels and using that water for our gardens.  

Get involved in community clean up days. Be sure to notify the Borough if you see clogged catch basins or a discharge of water that is not clear or has an odor. Everyone can help. Your help is greatly appreciated!
