Urban Storm Water Education
What is the Urban Stormwater Education Program?
The Clean Water Act was passed to protect the quality of surface
waters in the US.
In order to preserve, protect, and improve our water resources from
polluted stormwater runoff, the EPA requires that designated cities and
counties that have "urbanized areas" implement control measures.
These control measures include:
- Public Education and Outreach
- Public Participation and Involvement
- Pollution Prevention and Good
- Construction Site Runoff Control
- Post-Construction Runoff Control
- Illicit Discharge Detection and
Partnerships between the University of Arkansas Division of
Agriculture Cooperative Extension Service and city and county
governments in Benton, Jefferson and Washington Counties have been
formed. The partnerships provide for the Cooperative Extension Service
in these counties to carry out the first three control measures for the
local entities affected by these regulations.
