Storm Water Pollution Prevention: On the National level, there is discussion of legislation being drafted to design a National Storm Water Criteria. Though EPA guidelines and mandates currently exist in regards to storm water control, erosion and pollution, this proposed legislation would affect every construction project, building permit and city plan. Currently the city has a multi-tiered approach in meeting existing storm water pollution prevention guidelines.
Storm Sewers: Federal Storm Water Pollution Prevention Regulations call for cleaning storm sewers at least once every 10 years. Our goal is to clean all storm sewers at least once every 5 years and address the known problem areas every other year. In addition, storm boxes and catch basins are regulated to be cleaned at least once every 5 years.
