Stream Maintenance Guide thumbnail

DEP strives to assist Pennsylvania communities experiencing the damage and disruption that flooding can cause. This webpage contains resources to help municipal officials, property owners, and others affected by flooding of local streams to better understand the regulatory requirements that apply to working in streams. When stream maintenance work is performed in a well-planned, environmentally responsible manner, the likelihood of future problems is reduced.

Please contact your regional DEP office for further assistance.
