The City's Efforts

The city has the following ongoing activities to protect natural resources:

  • Public Education: The city provides information on stormwater issues.
  • Public Participation: Look for opportunities to participate in stream clean-up activities.
  • Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination: Decals are being installed to remind all of us not to dump in the storm drains.
  • Construction Site Control: The city and county are working together to enforce erosion control on construction sites.
  • Long-Term Stormwater Management: Permanent stormwater controls need to be maintained to protect water resources.
  • Good Housekeeping for Municipal Operations: The city picks up trash and leaves/limbs, and maintains city property to minimize water pollution.
