This includes not only the communities served by CDCA but Muckinipates Authority, Darby Creek Joint Authority, and the Radnor-Haverford-Marple Authority as well.

Recently, this planning effort has added an additional focus; private property I&I. This is referring to the extraordinary amount of rain and ground water that is leaking into our sewer system through building laterals. The 537 Planning document includes a proposed ordinance to require a point of sale inspection and repair of building laterals.
For more information on private property I&I, go to our Flow Information page.
