Sedona AZ (May 24, 2021) – In order to protect Oak Creek from pollutants, and as part of administering the Stormwater Quality Management Program (SQMP), the city of Sedona Public Works Department is requesting public comment on their SQMP. This public outreach also helps maintain compliance with the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ).
The SQMP identifies steps the city will take to enhance the quality of stormwater draining from its stormwater system. The SQMP also addresses activities that may result in stormwater 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 stormwater management and will take this input into consideration in future SQMP updates,” said Michael Righi, assistant engineer, city of Sedona.
The Sedona SQMP is available on the city of Sedona website at www.sedonaaz.gov by clicking “Your Government” and selecting “Public Works” under the “Departments” header in the drop-down menu. Select “Storms and Stormwater” and then Sedona Stormwater Management Program under the Stormwater Management sub-header.
Please submit comments by June 30, 2021 via email to Righi at firstname.lastname@example.org. Comments may also be sent via mail to Public Works Department ATTN: Michael Righi, 102 Roadrunner Drive, Sedona, AZ, 86336.
