ONTARIO-WAYNE STORMWATER COALITION STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURES BEING DRAFTED

Furnaceville beforeIn order to better fulfill the purpose and function of the Ontario-Wayne Stormwater Coalition, a series of Standard Operating Procedures are being drafted to provide a rubric for necessary inspections, handling of potentially polluting materials, housekeeping standards, and other issues related to the tasks common to stormwater management.

Stormwater Management Fact:

Typical stormwater pollutants are Nutrients ( Nitrogen & Phosphorus), Suspended Solids, Sediments, Oil & Greases (PAHs), Bacteria, Pesticides & Fertilizers, Temperature, Metals (Copper, Zinc, Lead, and Cadmium)

The fifteen Standard Operating Procedures currently in draft form are being reviewed by a committee of the Ontario-Wayne Stormwater Coalition to determine their applicability to stormwater management in the two counties.

A series of check-off inspection and reporting sheets accompany the Standard Operating Procedures and will be helpful in both identifying and assessing the scope of problems; and in reporting remediation or steps taken to ensure any issues are resolved.

Sharing services, expertise and information allows the members of the Ontario-Wayne Stormwater Coalition to function quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively to protect the water quality of the areas they serve.
