Mulberry Run Wetlands
In October, a Case Study for the SLAF grant program was conducted at the Mulberry Run Wetlands by the Choose Clean Water Coalition. The City of Waynesboro is grateful for the continued attention to this large project and thanks the citizens for the continued support! For more information, please follow the link to the short documentary of the study.
The City was issued a
permit from the State of Virginia to discharge water from storm drains to local
creeks and the South River. That permit
requires the City to operate an MS4 Program to monitor and maintain the storm
drain system and to employ measures to protect water quality in those receiving
streams. Some of these measures include
existing City programs such as inspecting Erosion and Sediment Control on
construction sites, spill response by the Fire Department and Public Works
Operations, and presentations by program staff in the City schools. But many of these measures have to be
developed such as detecting and correcting non-stormwater flows in the
stormwater system and proactive cleaning of pipes and structures.
