CITY OF AMERY: LMI-Amery Lakes Management Plan Implementation

Purpose

The City of Amery in partnership with the Amery Lakes District will develop a storm water management plan/ordinance and implement run-off control best management practices in priority (i.e. high nutrient load) sub-watersheds. Specifically, the City will: 1) update existing ordinances and develop a storm water management plan to reduce non-point source pollution; 2) design/build wetland basins and rain gardens at Soldier's Field; 3) design-build rain gardens at Flagpole Park; 4) select and install storm water control (e.g. rain gardens and barrels, shoreline buffers, porous pavement, and/or infiltration trenches) practices at demonstration sites within city limits; 5) develop example storm water education materials that will be applicable to other small cities; 6) inventory and measure in-lake habitat, including undeveloped shoreline and critical areas and develop plans for long-range protection and for measuring success of storm water control BMPs. Special conditions: * Project design plans need approval before project begins, and applicable water regulation permits must be issued before construction activities commence. * Best management practices installed at Soldier's Field and Flagpole Park will be maintained for a minimum of 10 years. * An operation and maintenance plan will be developed for care of the BMPs. A final report in PDF format summarizing the results of the project as well as copies of databases, maps, GIS files, guidebooks, ordinances or any other products resulting from the project shall be provided to the Department for review prior to final payment.
