1. PUBLIC EDUCATION AND OUTREACH. The City of McPherson provides staff training and public education and awareness. The effects of stormwater pollution are shared with local students and the general public through various presentations.
2. PUBLIC PARTICIPATION AND INVOLVEMENT. Throughout the year the City sponsors programs to clean up debris from waterways and encourages activities to help keep the community clean. Inlets are also labeled with "No Dumping, Drains to River" signage.
3. ILLICIT DISCHARGE DETECTION AND ELMINATION (IDDE). City ordinance states that only water is to be discharged into the stormwater systems throughout McPherson. When a pollutant is illicitly discharged into the gutter or into a drainage ditch around town, City staff is responsible for tracking down where the pollutant came from and educating the people involved with the discharge.
4. CONSTRUCTION SITE RUNOFF CONTROL. Without vegetative cover, construction sites are susceptible to soil erosion during storms. Contractors are required to contain sediment and any chemicals brought on site. They must also ensure vehicles are not tracking large amounts of sediment onto City streets. City staff inspects construction sites periodically to ensure all precautions are being taken to avoid the release of pollutants to waterways.
5. POST-CONSTRUCTION RUNOFF CONTROL. All new construction sites must submit a drainage plan detailing how the development will control the increased runoff from the site and slow it down to help alleviate the burden on existing infrastructure as well as treat the water to remove pollutants.
6. POLLUTION PREVENTION AND GOOD HOUSEKEEPING. Pollution prevention and good housekeeping measures include but are not limited to street sweeping, proper fleet maintenance techniques, proper salt storage facilities, proper storage and handling of hazardous materials and staff education.
