The Stormwater Division is responsible for implementing, managing and enforcing the city’s Stormwater Management Program. The division ensures that all EPA 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 managing the creation of a storm sewer system map which will provide city officials as well as the public with an interactive GIS layer. The layer shows the locations of all underground storm sewer system structures. 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 CivicReady reverse 911 program, multiple USGS flood warning stations and the future Emergency Alert Siren System.
The stormwater division has recently implemented online stormwater inspection reporting. Your inspections can be performed using a tablet or smart phone, in the field! The division must have set your project up in the application and you are required to have login information to access project inspection data. Click here to be linked to the web-based application.
*Note: The application works best in Google Chrome. If you have trouble logging in, contact Max Sestili 321-6773.
Construction Site Inspection CourseThe 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 bi-annually and encourages anyone who is interested to contact the Stormwater Coordinator for more information.
A stormwater inspector certification course is not currently scheduled. Contact Max Sestili, 321-6773 to schedule a private class.
