Enhancing Community and Watershed Sustainability

The Brandywine Conservancy, a watershed conservation organization in southeastern Pennsylvania, views municipal planning and resource protection efforts as critical to the sustainability of the Brandywine Creek watershed. For decades, the Conservancy's Environmental Management Center (EMC) has offered technical planning assistance to municipalities within its watershed, and has recently begun efforts to help municipal officials contribute to improving their communities' sustainability. John Theilacker, AICP, head of the EMC's municipal assistance program, and Wesley R. Horner, AICP, senior water resources advisor for the EMC, will share their community and watershed sustainability initiative through presentation and dialogue with session attendees in support of the Spring Creek Watershed Commission's own watershed sustainability initiative.

A core group from the Commission has been working on a spreadsheet that outlines several types of environmental controls. The goal of the SCWC is to begin to approach total Watershed Sustainability and having consistent ordinances and controls among the municipalities is a good first step.

It can also be helpful to a municipality who may be considering a particular control. By looking at the spreadsheet they can see who already has it in place and can get information about the control measure without re-inventing the wheel.
