SWMP- Minimum Control Measure #6

Good Housekeeping/Pollution Prevention deals with the impact of Municipal Employees activities on stormwater pollution. All municipal employees receive training on minimizing their influence on stormwater by implementing Best Management Practices (BMP’s) in their everyday work.

SWMP- Minimum Control Measure #5

Post-Construction Stormwater Management is the most recently implemented MCM in the SWMP. For projects to require Stormwater Treatment Facilities they need to have been preliminary platted after Sept 1, 2017 and greater than an acre in size.

SWMP- Minimum Control Measure #4

Construction Stormwater Management is a key part of controlling Stormwater Pollution. The City of Kearney has at least 120 building permits out at any point in the year. A lot of these disturb the soil and require Best Management Practices to control erosion and sediment movement.

SWMP- Minimum Control Measure #3

The City of Kearney’s IDDE Program depends a lot on the ‘eyes on the ground.’ In order to identify issues such as discharges that could negatively impact stormwater pollution, the City of Kearney relies on communication within its departments and the citizens of our municipality. There are established ways of communication: 308-233-3273; stormwater@kearneygov.org; and ‘Access Kearney’ at www.cityofkearney.org.

SWMP- Minimum Control Measure #2

Stormwater Management Plan MCM #2 is Public Involvement and Participation. This correlates with the first MCM. Ideally, a person/group will use the education that occurred with the first MCM and turn that interest into a passion. Activities done in the past include volunteering opportunities for Curb Inlet Marking and Canal Cleanup.
