The Township does not prohibit property owners from placing mailboxes within the limits of the legal right-of-way, as it is recognized that the United States Postal Service has certain placement requirements regarding the location of mailboxes. However, since these mailboxes are not placed under permit regulations, they are technically deemed to be encroachments which are placed and remain at risk of the property owner. Therefore, the Township is not liable for damages to mailboxes, fencing, shrubbery, trees, etc. caused by snow removal or other maintenance operations where same is located within the right-of-way limits.

Stormwater management in the Township is a significant focus. Pennsylvania State regulations require the Townships to provide educational information to the public on stormwater management and ways to control our stormwater to lessen the impact on our streams and rivers.

Blair Township cooperates with Blair County Conservation District for the review of development plans, public education, outreach and enforcement.  The Conservation District website gives an overview of stormwater management.  The link is: www.blairconservationdistrict.org/stormwater_management.htm

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection has a website with a variety of information on stormwater management: http://www.dep.pa.gov/Business/Water/CleanWater/StormwaterMgmt/Pages/Be-Stormwater-Smart-.aspx .

Informational Handouts you may find helpful in storm water management are posted below:
