Multnomah County stormwater mangement invites comments
The County manages stormwater on roadways in Troutdale, Wood Village and Fairview, on bridges spanning the Willamette River, and in unincorporated areas.
"The Stormwater Management Plan is designed to minimize the impact from roadways, development, and county operations on water quality," explains spokesman Mike Pullen. "These include activities such as catch basin cleaning, street sweeping, public education, land use permitting, and capital improvements."
The plan consists of seven categories and is a requirement of the National Pollutant Discharge and Elimination System Municipal Separate Storm Sewer (NPDES MS4) Phase I permit. After the commenting period is over, the report will be submitted to the Oregon DEQ.
The draft 2018 annual report is available online here.
