Type of Project:
Design and Construction
Best Management Practice
Description:
In March of 2005, the City adopted the Stevens Creek Watershed Master Plan, which included recommendations for City-wide stormwater standards that integrate water quality features with flood control facilities on new development sites in order to protect water quality and prevent stream erosion. These features, called "Site-Specific Structural Best Management Practices," were recommended to be implemented through a public-private cost share approach. This recommendation was based on the assumption that there is both a private and public responsibility relative to how these features function together as a system to address water quality and stream stability throughout a watershed.
Current projects funded for demonstration projects include rain gardens and bioswales for a new elementary school at Arnold Heights. This is a joint project with Public Works, Lincoln Public Schools and the Lower Platte South NRD.
The wetland rehabilitation project upstream of Holmes Lake is a joint project with Public Works, the Parks Department and the State Game and Parks Department.
