Better Storm Water Management is also a Homeowner’s Responsibility
"The city of Steamboat Springs in Colorado recently initiated a storm water management project that was set to begin May 26, 2015. The project includes the installation of an underground stormwater treatment device that supplements the existing storm sewer along one of the city’s major thoroughfares. The new system is expected to remove litter, sediment, oil and other pollutants from stormwater runoff before it’s released into the Yampa River. To coincide with the project, the city’s Public Works Department also hosted a one day training workshop on May 28, 2015 that aimed to discuss the inspection and maintenance of post-construction stormwater best management practices (BMP). Colorado Stormwater Center was tasked to present the workshop, which was held at Colorado State University."
