Abstract:

The Codorus Creek basin, with an area of 280 square miles, is located predominantly in York County, Pennsylvania, with approximately one square mile in Maryland. The study area includes the entire Codorus Creek basin plus the parts of the boroughs of Hanover, New Freedom, Red Lion, Shrewsbury, and Winterstown lying outside the basin. Additionally, the borough of Dover, although it lies completely outside the basin, is included in the study area since it now has and will in the future have a wastewater relationship to the Codorus basin. The study area is generally rural in nature, the major population center being the city of York and its surrounding communities. Presently, the study area is not part of the Northeastern megalopolis. However, it is served by the Interstate highway system and significant economic growth is a distinct possibility. The quality of the water in the study area is now substandard. In order to provide the area with an amenable water environment and to afford the maximum utilization of this resource consistent with environmental constraints, governmental action, particularly on the local level, is a necessity.
