The City’s drainage management guidelines were created in 1997. It is standard practice for communities and environmental agencies to review and revise stormwater regulations routinely. Our McCall City Engineer has prepared a Memorandum that thoroughly discusses this issue and provides staff recommendations for alternative design criteria for the Council’s consideration. This item will be addressed via a work session, on February 25, 2016 at 5:30pm in Legion Hall, which will allow for the Council to hear public comment regarding this issue and staff’s proposed recommendations. Join us to learn more or make a public comment.
Why do we need stormwater management?
Stormwater management helps prevent flooding from neighboring properties during storm and snow melt events. It also prevents the transportation of pollutants into adjacent water bodies like streams, lakes and Rivers.
