It is hereby determined and declared as a matter of public policy that flood control in the Chartiers Valley District is necessary to protect the health, safety and welfare of the Township of Robinson and its people and that flood control can best be accomplished by joining with other municipalities in the watershed of Chartiers Creek and its tributaries, and particularly with the City of Pittsburgh and the Boroughs of Carnegie, Bridgeville, Heidelberg and Rosslyn Farms, and the Townships of Collier, Scott and Upper St. Clair, in the formation of Chartiers Valley Flood Control Authority under the Municipality Authorities Act of 1945, as supplemented and amended.[1]

The President and the Secretary of the Board of Commissioners are hereby authorized and directed to join with the City of Pittsburgh and the boroughs and townships aforesaid in preparing and filing with the Secretary of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania articles of incorporation for the creation of a body politic and corporate in accordance with the Municipality Authorities Act of 1945, as supplemented and amended, said body politic and corporate to be known as "Chartiers Valley District Flood Control Authority," the purpose of which will be to do any or all things necessary to control the flooding of Chartiers Creek and its tributaries, and for this purpose to enjoy and exercise all powers and privileges set forth in the aforesaid Act of the General Assembly known as the Municipality Authorities Act of 1945, as supplemented and amended; subject, however, to the limitation as hereinafter provided for in § 8-3.
The enactment of this article shall in no manner whatsoever commit or be construed by the other participating municipalities or third parties as committing the Township of Robinson to finance, in whole or in part, the proposed Authority or any of the facilities or agreements of the said Authority. Nor shall the participation by officials of the Township of Robinson as members of the Board of said Authority in any manner create liability on the part of the Township of Robinson for the financing, in whole or in part, of said Authority, its facilities, agreements or administrative costs. The Township of Robinson reserves the right through its Board of Commissioners to determine at the proper time whether or not it will accept liability for financing in whole or in part of said Authority, its facilities, agreements or administrative costs.
