Sedona AZ (May 27, 2016) – In an effort to protect Oak Creek from pollutants, and as part of administering the Storm Water Quality Management Program, the city of Sedona Public Works Department is requesting public comment on their Storm Water Master Plan. This public outreach also helps maintain compliance with the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ).
The Storm Water Quality Management Program carries out what is detailed in the master plan, which identifies steps the city will take to enhance the quality of storm water draining from its storm water system. The master plan also addresses activities that may result in storm water pollution from construction sites, existing developments, government agencies, and residents or tourists. The plan does not however deal with the volume of water the system handles.
“We value the public input we receive from residents on storm water management and will take this input into consideration in future Storm Water Master Plan updates,” said Michael Righi, assistant engineer, city of Sedona.
The Storm Water Master Plan is available at the Sedona Public Library and on the city of Sedona website at www.SedonaAZ.gov by selecting “Your Government,” “Departments,” “Public Works,” and “Storm Water in Sedona.”
Comments need to be submitted by June 30, 2016 via in person to the city of Sedona Public Works Department at 102 Roadrunner Drive or via e-mail to Michael Righi, city of Sedona assistant engineer at MRighi@SedonaAZ.gov.
