Public Input Surveys - We Need to Hear from You!
|Chester County is working to review and update the County's integrated water resources plan, Watersheds, and the County's Stormwater Management Plan. A key component of the update process is getting input from residents from across the County on their water resources, water-based recreation, and stormwater concerns. |
Please provide us with your perspective by completing the surveys below. Do you know a group who is passionate about improving the County's watersheds? If so, please share these links with them, or send them our water resources survey flyer and water-based recreation survey flyer.
If you have additional questions about the plan updates, please contact us at [email protected]
