Description

The Clean Water Act now require that municipalities and states address water quality issues related to storm water. As part of these requirements, the City of Logan (along with 10 other communities in Cache County) need to monitor water quality issues related to: 1) illicit discharges, detection and elimination, 2) future sampling of discharges from construction sites, 3) monitoring of identified pollutants in the Cutler Reservoir TMDL and removal of these pollutants to acceptable levels, 4) possible treatment of storm water before being discharged to the Waters of United States, 5) monitoring of storm water quality and quantity in shared drainage systems as it leaves City limits. In today's economy, it is imperative that tools and methods be developed to allow municipalities to collect information, identify pollutants and pollutant levels, and methods of treatment of storm water. In order to fulfill this task, it will take the knowledge and skills of academia, practicing professionals and industry to come up with innovative and economical solutions.
