Soil Movement Regulations

Chapter XXVIII of the Borough Code establishes regulations for the disturbance, relocation, filling, excavation and removal of soil on a large scale, so as not to be detrimental to the public health, safety, and general welfare. 

Soil Moving Permit

Any project contemplating the moving of soil on any lot within a 12-month period will require a Soil Moving Permit Application (PDF) that must be reviewed and approved by the Borough Engineer.
