Scottsbluff, Gering and Terrytown work to preserve water quality, implement good stormwater management and flood prevention. Some of the cities’ tasks include:
– Working with agencies to identify and map floodplains, wetlands and riparian areas.
– Determining areas for development, avoidance, and other sensitive areas.
– Integrating natural drainage features or low impact features into planning to minimize disturbance.
– Collaborating with agencies for proper management and preservation of riparian zones, community forestry, and land management techniques.
