About the Authority
The Cranberry Township Board of Supervisors created the General Authority to take advantage of programs and funding opportunities offered by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to municipal authorities that assist in implementing municipal services and other activities permitted by the Pennsylvania Municipal Authorities Act.
A growing awareness of just how vulnerable Pennsylvania’s waterways have become to damage from stormwater runoff has resulted in legislation requiring municipalities like Cranberry to obtain permits before discharging stormwater runoff into waterways like Brush Creek.
These permits, valid for five years, require communities to put stormwater management programs in place that reduce the discharge of pollutants, educate the public, and protect local water quality.

Pond and Swale Maintenance
Your stormwater detention and/or retention pond is an essential part of Pennsylvania’s efforts to improve
the water quality of our streams, rivers, and lakes. But, we need your help to properly maintain the detention ponds so they don’t fail prematurely.
This guidebook is to serve as a practical tool and aid the owner in the inspection and maintenance of the stormwater management facility.
