York County Stormwater Compliance was established to provide for the management of water quality and for the control of stormwater and sediment within the unincorporated areas of York County. The need for this more regimented approach to managing run-off comes as a result of the need to maintain quality development, as well as the protection of our waterways, wildlife and aquatic life. The York County Stormwater Compliance is also responsible for the administration of the County’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Permit and oversees construction site compliance, floodplain management and water quality programs.
Additionally, as part of our commitment to quality customer service, we promise to make every effort to assist applicants, respond to inquiries, and resolve complaints or concerns in a professional, courteous and timely manner. We are constantly striving to better our services and welcome your feedback. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Please feel free to contact us at any time.

- Protect human life and health, minimize property damage, and encourage appropriate construction practices to minimize public and private losses due to flood conditions by requiring that uses vulnerable to floods, including facilities which serve such uses, be protected against flood damage.
- Ensure that temporary erosion and sediment control measures are provided to protect individuals occupying land (adjacent to and downstream from proposed developments) from being damaged by sediment due to the proposed development.
- Provide a high level of customer service and communication to the public and private sectors.
