Protect Our Water Supply
As storm water flows over roofs, across lawns, and down driveways, it picks up dirt, debris, and chemicals before entering storm drains. Storm drains then empties into the bodies of water we use for drinking, swimming, and fishing. Protect our water supply by helping to reduce the contaminants in our storm water.
Here’s how to protect our water supply:
- Use the Waste System Authority of Eastern Montgomery County’s Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program to dispose of hazardous household substances, such as used motor oil, cleaning supplies, and paint.
- Use pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides properly to prevent excess runoff.
- Pick up after pets and dispose of their waste properly. If left in your yard or at the park, pet waste can be carried into the storm sewer system or a stream by storm water runoff.
- Instead of washing your car in your driveway, take it to a commercial car wash, where the water is treated and recycled.
- Plant drought-tolerant, native plants and grasses in your garden. They often require less water, fertilizer, and pesticides.
10 simple things identified by the EPA that the typical homeowner and/or business owner can do to help reduce stormwater pollution.

Souderton Community Park
Thanks to many volunteers and borough crews the Souderton Community Park annually receives a fresh look. Earth Day kicks off a community clean up and the Souderton Community Park is one of the many sites throughout the borough to get a spring pick up and a year long make over. Recently the park benches, tables, shuffleboard, pavilion and band shell were painted. Even though park maintenance is in the plan, Mother Nature usually adds a few items on the ‘list of things to do’ .
The Souderton Community Park is a gathering place for many activities throughout the seasons. Thousands of guests visit the park each year. Many memories are cherished and celebrated annually, family reunions, birthday parties, picnics and special events. Families enjoy spending the day at the Souderton Community Park and taking advantage of all the amenities the park and the community has to offer. The pavilion in the Souderton Community Park can be reserved by calling the borough office for availability and information.
Souderton’s recreational centerpiece is the Community Park and adjacent to The Souderton Pool

Souderton Community Parks
Wile Avenue and Reliance Road
“Music to your ears.” This handsome, covered outdoor theatre stage was constructed as a result of funding received from the Souderton-Telford Rotary Club and was dedicated to the Souderton Centennial Celebration on June 14, 1987. Donations for the construction came from individual club members and local businesses. The band shell is equipped with electric and an excellent lighting system. One unique aspect of the band shell is the arched laminated beam forming the front of the roof.
Beginning each June and continuing every Sunday through the beginning of August, “Concert Sundaes in the Park” Contact Concert Sundaes features various musical concerts and programs geared for people of all ages. These free concerts start at 7 p.m. Each week a different community service club sells ice cream! Program booklets are available at the Borough Office. (In the case of inclement weather, the scheduled event is held in the auditorium of the Indian Crest Middle School, 139 Harleysville Pike Rt. 113).
In honor of Souderton’s 100th Anniversary Celebration, joint efforts of the Indian Valley Kiwanis Club and the Centennial Committee enabled the construction of this spacious sheltered picnic area. The pavilion is equipped with picnic tables, electric, lighting, and water. Reservations are required to use the pavilion during summer months. Check with the Borough Office for availability. Modular playground equipment is adjacent to the pavilion.

We have also installed new playground equipment geared toward kids ages 2 to 12. The new equipment features a swing set and two modular play pieces and is enclosed in a fenced-in area.
