Our Work

Focused Work

Since its inception in 2014, the Cranberry Township General Authority has focused on improving stormwater management and meeting the high level of quality and expectations the Township expects.


The Authority Board approved a 2023 Budget that funds continued capital investments by enhancing the stormwater system within Cranberry Township.

Stormwater Fee

Beginning in 2020, the General Authority of Cranberry Township imposed a stormwater utility fee to help offset the cost of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection mandates to manage the quantity and quality of stormwater. The full $6 rate was implemented at the beginning of 2022.

Federally Mandated

Township's Federally Mandated MS4 Permit

The Authority is also charged with assisting the Township with meeting the requirements of the federally mandated MS4 Permit issued by the Pennsylvania Department of Environment Resources. 

This multi-year permit requires the Township to remove over 500 tons of sediment from Township streams. The Authority will fund that work that primarily by implementing stream bank rehabilitation throughout the Township. This work will take place in Settlers Grove, Glenbrook Manor and Cedarbrook residential plans. 

Much of this work will be done in collaboration with the Homeowner Associations that own the land along those streams – a collaboration that is frequently used in all projects.

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.


Stormwater Management

Always Prepared

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.

Homeowners and HOAs

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.
