[ARCHIVED] Stormwater Management Update

Sidney City Hall Sign

The city’s current permit, issued by the Ohio EPA, requires the city to implement six minimum control measures. The six minimum controls covered in the permit are:

  • Public Education and Outreach: the city uses billboard with different themes to reach the local population to educate them about pollution and/or illegal dumping along with distributing educational materials
  • Public Involvement and Participation: the city’s annual Clean Sweep of the Great Miami River event annually satisfies this requirement
  • Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination: the city annually identifies and screens various stormwater outfalls to detect sources of illicit discharges
  • Construction Site Stormwater Runoff Control: site plans are reviewed to ensure stormwater runoff controls are in place prior to construction along with site inspections during construction
  • Post-Construction Stormwater Management: a combination of structural and non-structural practices to address runoff is required in Codified Ordinances
  • Pollution Prevention and Good Housekeeping for Municipal Operations: city facilities are annually inspected to prevent or reduce pollutant runoff

We continue to focus primarily on enforcement through education rather than penalties.
