Stream Naming

Residents have the opportunity to name any unmarked body of water, such as streams and ponds with the approval of the Board of Supervisors per Resolution 2023-11.  

Residents should fill out an application and bring it to the Township Building with the application fee.  The names will then be placed on the Township website (below) for two weeks.  Afterwards, it will be voted on at the next Board of Supervisors Meeting.
