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.

Wilson, the innovative giant ocean garbage collector by The Ocean Cleanup, set sail September 2018. Click here to view an update on the project.

Remember, despite Wilson’s efforts, the best way to remove plastic from water is to prevent it from entering waterways in the first place. Avoid single use plastics when possible and properly recycle or dispose of plastics that must be used.

Please Pick Up Your Fireworks

The City of Kearney operates multiple street sweepers on a regular basis. They are not designed for picking up Fireworks debris that citizens leave on the street. This debris will not be picked up by the City. Please pick up after yourselves.
