Stormwater Management

Stormwater Division
The Stormwater Division is responsible for implementing, managing and enforcing the city’s Stormwater Management Program. The division ensures that all E.P.A. and ADEQ mandated NPDES (Clean Water Act) regulations are maintained throughout city limits.  Included mandates consist of: public education and outreach, public involvement, illicit discharge detection and elimination, construction site runoff control, post-construction water quality and good housekeeping for municipal operations.  The division is also working continuously to provide an additional GIS layer to provide a map of the storm sewer system that will be available for use by city officials as well as the public.  In addition to ensuring the city's compliance with the required mandates, the stormwater division investigates stormwater and drainage concerns, oversees drainage improvements that are performed by the city and plays a key role in the maintenance and repairs that are performed for the Hot Springs Creek Tunnel.  The division participates actively with the city's Weather Emergency Response Team and oversees operation of: the CodeRED program, multiple USGS flood warning stations and the future Emergency Alert Siren System.  

Construction Site Inspection Course
The owner or contractor of a construction site with an open stormwater permit, must perform site inspections to maintain compliance with their stormwater pollution prevention plan.  The city requires that the individual performing the stormwater site inspections must have completed and passed the Construction Site Inspection Course.  The stormwater division hosts the course quarterly and encourages anyone who is interested to contact the Stormwater Coordinator for more information.

The next Construction Site Inspection Course will be held on December 6, 2013.  Attendees must submit a registration form and payment prior to December 2, 2013.  Download Registration Form
