TITLE: Title

Stormwater Utility Monthly Report 

PURPOSE:   The purpose of this item is to provide the monthly update regarding Stormwater Utility projects and initiatives. 


DEPARTMENT:  Public Works


CONTACT INFORMATION:  Randy Dodd, Stormwater Utility Manager, 919 918-7341 


INFORMATION:   The report identifies 14 separate projects and initiatives that Stormwater staff are currently or will be involved in within the next 12-18 months.  These are specific efforts, some time-limited and others part of ongoing stormwater program development, that are above and beyond the baseline workload that includes but is not limited to: general program administration; stormwater system inspections; reviewing development plans; stream determinations/buffer reviews; and illicit discharge response and pollution prevention.


Work was pursued in February for many of these items, as presented in the report.  With regard to the RainReady work in the Toms Creek watershed, a public presentation (videotaped) from the Center for Neighborhood Technology and discussion occurred.  Plans are in place for CNT to complete their work in the next several months. Staff and the Stormwater Advisory Commission will be providing review, with plans to present the work to the Council tentatively scheduled for May. More information is available at <> . While not included in the report, it is worth mentioning that Stormwater staff are collaborating with Chapel Hill staff on a stream clean up for the stream running adjacent to the Roberson bike path on Saturday, March 7th.


FISCAL & STAFF IMPACT:  There is no fiscal impact associated with this update.  There are/will be nearer and longer term fiscal and staff impacts, as presented in the report. 


RECOMMENDATION: It is recommended that the Council receive the staff report.
