The City of Worthington will hold a public meeting on its Storm Water Pollution Prevention Program (SWPPP) at 7:00 p.m., Monday, June 11, 2012, at City Hall. The public meeting will be held as part of the regularly scheduled City Council Meeting.
The SWPPP is part of the City's permit that was prepared to meet the requirements of a federally mandated storm water permit program that is administered by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA). The overall goal of the program is to reduce the amount of sediment and pollution that enters surface waters.
The public meeting will include a presentation of a draft annual report that addresses each of the best management practices that make up the City's SWPPP. Staff will also summarize goals and activities completed in the past year of the program. Residents will be given an opportunity to provide written or oral comments on the City's SWPPP. The City will consider all comments and may make reasonable adjustments to the SWPPP as part of the annual report to be submitted to the MPCA. A copy of the SWPPP may be reviewed at the office of the City Engineer and is also available at: http://www.ci.worthington.mn.us/stormwater/
