  • 2-20 Public Facilities  Sewer Improvements Plan Q&A: “Q: It would be better not to put phosphorus into the water, rather than working to remove it. What work is being done to limit phosphorus seeping the water? Is there more we could do to remediate on commercial properties?
    A: Phosphorus is naturally occurring, so it is difficult to prevent it entirely. The larger credit on the stormwater fee for businesses who implement mitigation measures will help us achieve our phosphorus load goals. They will want the credit and will work to incorporate improved systems. As commercial properties are redeveloped, the City will require various improvements to the parking lot runoff as well.”  Street Sweeping report: “DPW has decreased the rate that salt is being used from 1200 lbs. per mile five years ago to 400 lbs./mile.”  full report
